FC: Camy's Big Trip | by: Ashley Ware Block 2

1: bibliography | location resources www.srh.weather.gov/zipcity.php?inputstring=Orlando,%20FL disneyworldnearhotels.com techpin.com | human/ environment interactions resources human-3d.com | region resources justice.gov | movement resources digital-photography-school.com

2: Location!! | Camy, the camera, learned in schools that location is one of the 5 themes of geography. | Location - Your position on the Earth's surface, where you are.

3: We all know where camy has gone based on that picture right? Walt Disney World! | the absolute location of Walt Disney World latitude: 28.51 degrees north longitude: 81.38 degrees west Those numbers are the exact place where Walt Disney World is at. | The relative location is where it's close to. So, Walt Disney World would be relatively close to the airport and the beach. | Camy is on to her next theme of geography!

4: Human/ environmental interactions! | everything we do affects the Earth!

5: It's the relation between the Earth and us! | everything on Earth affects us! | and camy moves on

6: region | 1) Distinctive characteristics: a) area: defined spatial extent b) location: lie somewhere on Earth’s surface c) boundaries: sometimes evident on the ground, often based on specifically chosen areas d) other: cultural (language, religion), economic (agriculture, industry), physical (climate, vegetation) | 2) Three types of regions: a) Formal – (a.k.a. uniform, homogeneous), visible and measurable homogeneity (link to scale and detail) b) Functional – product of interactions, and movement of various kinds, usually characterized by a core and hinterland (e.g. a city and its surrounding suburbs) c) Perceptual – (a.k.a. vernacular), primarily in the minds of people (e.g. Sunbelt)

7: Camy's on to her next adventure!

8: place | Components of culture: Culture region – the area within which a particular culture system prevails (dress, building styles, farms and fields, material manifestations,) Culture trait – a single attribute of culture | Culture complex – a discrete combination of traits Culture system – grouping of certain complexes, may be based on ethnicity, language, religion,e) Culture realm – an assemblage of culture (or geographic) regions, the most highly generalized regionalization of culture and geography

9: Culture – people’s lifestyles, values, beliefs, and traits What people care about: language, religion | Vegetation – plant life. c) Soil – the material that forms Earth’s surface, in the thin interface between the air and the rocks. Erosion and the depletion of nutrients are two basic problems concerning the destruction of the soil. d) Landforms – Earth’s surface features (geomorphology), limited population near poles and at high altitudes

10: movement | movement of people, religions, and cultures are what this page and camy love the most!

11: camy says move on (haha) and share the 5 themes of geography with others! bye!

12: Definitions Location location-Your position on the Earth's surface, where you are. Maps: best way to show location Site: physical characteristics of a place; climate, water sources Situation: the external locational attributes of a place; its relative location or regional position with reference to other nonlocal places. Absolute location: latitude and longitude (mainly useful in determining exact distances and direction (maps). Relative location: location of a place relative to other places | Human/ environmental interactions Cultural landscape – includes all human changes that involve the surface of the Earth Cultural ecology - the multiple interactions and relationships between a culture and the natural environment. Environmental Determinism – human behavior, individually and collectively, is strongly affected by, and even controlled or determined by the environment

13: human/environmental interaction cont. Possibilism – the natural environment merely serves to limit the range of choices available to a culture Environmental Modification – positive and negative environmental alterations | region Distinctive characteristics: a) area: defined spatial extent b) location: lie somewhere on Earth’s surface c) boundaries: sometimes evident on the ground, often based on specifically chosen criteria d) other: cultural (language, religion), economic (agriculture, industry), physical (climate, vegetation) | 2) Three types of reg Three types of regions: a) Formal – (a.k.a. uniform, homogeneous), visible and measurable homogeneity (link to scale and detail) b) Functional – product of interactions, and movement of various kinds, usually characterized by a core and hinterland (e.g. a city and its surrounding suburbs) c) Perceptual – (a.k.a. vernacular), primarily in the minds of people (e.g. Sunbelt)
