This glossary provides definitions of the main terms and ideas used in GeoCapabilities.
The terms and ideas here are complex, interconnected and often have cultural meanings. In other words, they are often difficult to ‘translate’. The ‘translations’ are better understood as ‘interpretations’ into different cultural and linguistic contexts.
Just as cultural and linguistic contexts may vary, so do subject specialist contexts. Most of the ideas below apply to other school subjects (not only geography). But in distinctive ways.
