About DailyGeo

DailyGeo is a short news blast in which we show the ubiquitous nature of geography driving current news stories. Our Chairman, Dr. Chris Tucker, likes to refer to DailyGeo as “brain-candy.” Our readers find it to be geo-informative as well as geo-entertaining DailyGeo is comprised of three main sections: Where in the World, Thumbs Up, and GeoQuestion; sometimes we also include one of our occasional sections: Maps Do it Better, A Cartographer’s Quandary, The Arternative World, and Nothing New.
