About the Geography Site

The Geography Site
This web resource was created by a geographer, David Robinson, who recognised the need for a website providing students and teachers with high quality, original and reliable resources for learning and teaching about geography. It concentrates on the 12 - 16 age range but some resources will be suited to older / more advanced students.

The emphasis is upon original content, although a library of carefully selected and annotated links to other World Wide Web geographical resources is also included. The quality of these resources has been recognised by numerous independent bodies, and this site is approved by the National Grid for Learning.

No charge is made for access to our resources when accessed, via the Internet, at home or in educational establishments. Organisations wishing to store the entire site locally should read the copyright statement first.

The design is intended to be easy to use and to access. It does not use frames, complicated Java or other active components. Where Java Script is used, either an alternative option is available or the use of the script will not deny content to users without this facility.
