About

Miami Geographic was founded in April 2014 by Matthew Toro, a geographer wishing to expand and deepen the discourse on the city.

Miami Geographic is a geo-journalism hub designed to explore, map, and analyze Miami toward the goal of “raising the people’s understanding of and appreciation for the city”.

It’s an urban geography blog that looks at the city at multiple scales of understanding, from the hyper-local to the global, and from multiple analytic perspectives.

Miami Geographic’s underlying raison d’être is to build a deeper understanding of Miami’s (historical and contemporary) social, political, economic, and environmental dynamics, challenges, and possibilities.

Miami Geographic is also a highly visual and data-driven medium, priding itself on its use of maps and other graphic elements. Original cartographic output and geospatial data visualizations (geovisualizations/geovisuals) feature prominently on the site and set Miami Geographic apart from other local, community-based information outlets.
