  1. This is a great idea. I would suggest, however, that a useful addition to the timeline might include an ‘education’ line/category, ie, school and university education. This could include when universities started their geography departments, or when countries formalised geography in their national curricula, or highlight particularly transformative educational programs. Just a suggestion.
