1: A Year in Review

2: The | Absolute Location | Formal Region | Central | Concepts | My house withholds two important things: an exact point on this earth; 33.102096,-96.751772 and my place of haven. | Bounded by the stones brick walls of Highlands of Russell Park, the people within are considered a part of Plano.

3: Functional Region | Space-Time Compression | Bounded by the stones of | All those who function with RaceTrac (getting gasoline) would be those who live near, around, or prefer it. | The time taken to interact with those who's place is far within reach is shortened by the transportation of a car.

4: Spatial Interactions | Expansion Diffusion | Relocation Diffusion | Human ideas and concepts are spread throughout the nation starting from ink and paper. | The delicacies of Asian cuisine moves to a new location to spread it's unique taste in a culture other than its own.

5: Township & Range | Arithmetic Density | People here, people there, people everywhere. In a mall, countless people walk by, and we find that a certain amount of people can fit in some area before becoming totally claustrophobic. | Split by the invisible, yet unforgettable boundaries, these apartment complexes have their own township and range squares to conform by.

11: Day at the Beach | GIS | Aerial Photography | Viewing the world from a bird's eye view is as if I'm on top of the world. This photo shows the landscapes of California. | The layers of addresses, businesses, restaurants, and other buildings can be found with a touch of a finger. GIS is the technology that helps us find numerous places with an organized database.
