Description of the Slide Compilation Project

Coastal and marine geographers work in a variety of marvelous settings on a diversity of research topics, and have unique experiences and documentation of those studies. The exceptional quality of many of our colleague's slides at the 1997 annual meeting of the AAG inspired Wayne Engstrom (California State University, Fullerton) and Joann Mossa (University of Florida, Gainesville) to begin a slide compilation project for and from our membership. By 1998 the compilation project had received three slide sets and was at a stand still.

Richard Daniels (Department of Ecology, Olympia, Washington) was appointed the primary contact for the project in 1998 and the concept of the project changed from collecting and publishing individual slide sets, to collecting, scanning, and publishing several slide sets on a single CDROM. These changes were made to reduce the cost of publishing individual slide sets, take advantage of currently available scanning technologies, and to increase the long-term viability of the final product.

If successful, it is anticipated that this CDROM will be of great benefit to current and future teachers in the profession and has the potential for providing additional operating funds to our specialty group.

What is the AAG?

The Association of American Geographers (AAG) is a scientific and educational society founded in 1904. Its 7,000 members share interests in the theory, methods, and practice of geography, which they cultivate through the AAG's Annual Meeting, two scholarly journals (the Annals of the Association of American Geographers and The Professional Geographer), the monthly AAG Newsletter, and the activities of its nine Regional Divisions and 49 Specialty Groups. The AAG conducts educational and research projects that further its interests and programs.

What is the Coastal & Marine Specialty Group (COMA)

AAG Specialty Groups are voluntary associations of AAG members who share interests in regions or topics. COMA was formed to encourage the intellectual exchange of knowledge related to coastal and marine environments and resources between geographers and other professionals (e.g., coastal engineers). The group actively works to keep its members involved through the bi-annual publication of its newsletter, Coastal Letters, and through its annual business meeting that is held concurrently with the AAG annual meeting.
