Applied Geography: Day Two

I missed the morning sessions due to some personal appointments, but I did make it to the luncheon with Lee Schwartz, Director of the U.S. State Department's Geography & Global Issues group within the Bureau of Intelligence & Research. Dr. Schwartz provided a good overview of what his office does regarding negotiating international boundaries, surveying humanitarian crisis, and mapping relevant issues for the Department of State. With a small staff of analysts, who by the way aren't geographers by education, excel at managing and monitoring relevant geographic issues. So, I wonder if they're hiring?

He spoke last year on GIS day at GWU about mapping the crisis in Darfur. He brought a nice map showing the locations of all the refugees.
