Abstract

Graphicacy is described as the educated counterpart of the visual-spatial aspect of human intelligence and communication. The possibility of extending the present graphicate frontier is discussed. Graphicacy is seen as fundamental in education along with literacy, articulacy and numeracy. Since maps, diagrams, photographs and other spatial documents are the tools of graphicacy as well as the basis of geography it is argued that geography should rank with English and mathematics as a foundation school subject.
