November isn’t just about giving thanks and passing the stuffing—it’s also about becoming aware that geography matters! Mark your calendars because Geography Awareness Week (GAW) runs from November 12-18 and geographic information systems (GIS) Day is November 15th. As you may already be aware, geography is more than places on a map. It's global connections and environmental insights. It's people and cultures, economics and politics. And it's essential to understanding our interconnected world.

Science Picks keep you up to date with the latest news and information from the USGS. Science Picks help you cover ongoing earth and natural science research, investigations and technology. Photos and Web links are also provided to enhance your story. If you would like to receive Science Picks via email, would like to change the recipient or no longer want to receive it, please e-mail dmakle@usgs.gov.
