Geography in the News™ has been produced by Dr. Neal Lineback for 22 years and celebrated its 1000th edition in July 2009. It was an idea hatched during Neal's time as a high school teacher in Henry County, Va as a way to help students relate their geography lessons to world events — the most significant at that time being the Vietnam War.

The column found its current home at Maps101 in 1991 and is currently read in thousands of schools across the US in its online format. A weekly article, it provides readers with interesting, in-depth information on our ever-changing world.

Longtime subscribers are familiar with the breadth of the articles' coverage, ranging from physical and environmental to cultural and economic topics — all derived from current events in both the United States and the world at large.
