2: Central Concepts In My Geographic Life | This me in the very famous NanJing. Relative Distance is shown because the further you are, the less likely you will hear the bell. | This represents a scale. I am in the building the wooden model is depicting. Space Time Compression in Maseratti.
3: Spatial Interaction in My Personal World | Shanghai is a Central Place in China. Most of the economic trade with foreign countries happens here. | The arithmetic density is close to 75 people per sq mile. The area is very big, and there aren't many people. | The view from the mountains shows the city of Chen Xi and its layout. This is an example of land survey. | This is an example of Hierarchical Diffusion. The family members around me are Asian, therefore I share that same characteristic.
4: Geographic Tools in my Life | The Texas map is an example of a topographical map. It shows roads, lakes, cities etc. | The county map on the back of the state map is an example of a Chloropleth map because of the different color variations to show the different counties | A mental map of Liberty HIgh School | Map scale
5: Models help me understand my world better | The Terracotta soldier is a model of how people dressed back then and it also provides insight to the changes we have gone through. | The model of the city helps you better understand what the city looks like and how the city was designed. | The Demographic Transitional Model helps me understand what the future of the population will look like and what stage it's in. | Sector Models helps people know where to go in a city by showing how the city is organized.
6: Geographic Technology makes my Life better | My Mac Pro allows me to view data layers in the form of maps and also helps me easily understand them. | The iPhone is an example of technology that allows ease of access to satellites and information. | The GPS in my car allows us to get to our destination in the shortest time or route. | This GPS lets me see exactly where on Earth I am.
