Discussion of Tobler’s "First Law of Geography" Published in AAG Journal

In Spring 2003, Dan Sui, Professor of Geography at Texas A&M, held a forum on Waldo Tobler’s “First Law of Geography.” The law states “Everything is related to everything else, but near things are more related than distant things.” At the forum, five professors presented papers on the topic. One of those participants was our own Mike Goodchild. Tobler replied, in writing, to the five papers. The AAG journal Annals of the Association of American Geographers has published the papers and Tobler’s replies in the June 2004 issue.
