Internet geographers study the distribution of people and content online. They can determine where a website is hosted, which countries have access, and what the target audience may be.
The internet is an ever-changing environment. It is difficult to keep track of every single change that is happening in the space.
This is where an internet geographer comes in.
An internet geographer’s job is to map the digital landscape, identify trends and emerging opportunities, and spot potential threats to their customers’ content or business goals.
Internet Geographers are typically employed by large corporations like Microsoft, Google, or Amazon but they could also be employed by small companies whose business relies heavily on the internet in some way.
Most often they work in data analytics or marketing departments but some also work in human resources or customer service departments if they are not dealing with customers on a day-to-day basis.
