AGS Launches Geobadges

December 3, 2015 — As a 21st century learning society dedicated to the advancement of geographic thinking, understanding and knowledge across business, government academe, the social sector and education, the American Geographical Society is proud to have launched during Geography Awareness Week.  This independent micro-credentialing platform allows every organization that is committed to similar principals to allow the world to garner credit for their investment of time in the development of geographic skills, and the application of those skills toward public service.

We encourage everyone to spread the word, and to begin earning the GeoBadges that are relevant to their own lives and learning endeavors.  In particular, everyone who participated in OSMGeoWeek should make sure to collect their OSM Editor and Organizer GeoBadges, and put them in your LinkedIn account.

The AGS is proud to have TeachOSM, the MapStory Foundation, GeoPlunge, the Open Geospatial Consortium, GeoMakers, the PeaceCorps, and CrisisMappers as a part of the launch.  If your organization has ideas for GeoBadges that you would like to issue, please contact Selene Lawrence at or call us at 917-745-8354.
