Geography in the News – Where am I?

So I came across this article in the NY Times today, albeit a little late (It was published over a year ago), and found it interesting.  The article is a review of the book “You are Here” by Colin Ellard.  The author examines our increasing dependence on GPS and associated mapping technology and whether it’s diminishing our ability to be spatially aware of where we are.

Examining spatial awareness is not a new concept.  For other interesting titles on the topic see below:
