All co-ordinates covered 1

Justin Marozzi's jeremiad concerning the Royal Geographical Society is wide of the mark (Letters, 11 June).

I do not recognise his caricatured assessment and would urge interested readers to explore the society's website (, where there is plenty of evidence of excellent outreach and knowledge transfer. This should help to undermine any claim that the society is somehow dominated by academic geographers hellbent on pursuing their own agendas. As Abraham Lincoln once noted: "If you look for the bad in people expecting to find it, you surely will."
