Harvard Center for Geographic Analysis

According to the Harvard Center for Geographic Analysis' new website, on May 5, 2006, "Harvard returned to geography." On that date, Harvard had the official opening of its new geographic research center. Among the attending dignitaries, ESRI's Jack Dangermond remarked, "what happens with this center and what starts today will set off shockwaves in the academic world."

The Center's website makes reference to the Harvard's commitment to raise funds for two senior faculty positions, and, the Center's intention to "[add] to the undergraduate and graduate curriculum."

None of this has received all that much press. In fact, a recent websearch for Harvard Geography yielded this blog as the top hit.
