National Geography Standards: Geography for Life 

National geography standards developed by the Geography Education Implementation Project (GENIP) – a consortium of the National Council for Geographic Education (NCGE), the National Geographic Society (NGS), the Association of American Geographers (AAG), and the American Geographical Society (AGS).   Since 1994, these standards have provided national guidelines for curriculum development.  In this 2nd edition, revised content captures the growth and importance of geospatial technologies and spatial thinking in geography over the last 18 years.
