The making or study of maps or charts.
|Contagious diffusion|| |
The rapid, widespread diffusion of a feature or trend throughout a population.
|Cultural Ecology|| |
Geographic approach that emphasizes human-environment relationships.
A particular society at a particular time and place
The number of individuals in a certain area
The process of spread of a feature or trend from one place to another over time
The effects of distance on interaction, generally the greater the distance the less interaction.
The process of giving/spreading things out into a community or group of people.
|Environmental Determinism|| |
A doctrine that claims that cultural traits are formed and controlled by environmental conditions
An imaginary circle around the middle of the earth, halfway between the North Pole and the South Pole
|Expansion Diffusion|| |
The spread of a feature from one place to another in a snowballing process
|Formal Region|| |
An area in which everyone shares in one or more distinctive characteristics
|Friction of Distance|| |
A measure of how much absolute distance affects the interaction between two places.
|Functional Region|| |
An area organized around a node of focal point.
A computer system that stores, organizes, analyzes, and displays geographic data. (Geographic Info. System)
A navigational system involving satellites and computers that can determine the latitude and longitude of a receiver on Earth by computing the time difference for signals from different satellites to reach the receiver
|Hierarchical diffusion|| |
The spread of a feature or trend from one key person or node of authority or power to other persons or places.
The region from which innovative ideas originate
|International Date Line|| |
The line of longitude that marks where each new day begins, centered on the 180th meridian.
An imaginary line around the Earth parallel to the equator
Distance east or west on the earth's surface, measured in degrees from a certain meridian (line from the North to the South Pole).
|Mercator projection|| |
A map projection of the earth onto a cylinder
The theory that the environment sets certain constraints or limitations, but culture is otherwise determined by social conditions.
|uneven development|| |
the increasing gap in economic conditions between regions in the core and periphery that results from the globalization of the economy.
|vernacular region|| |
The sense of a place. Ex. "home"
|remote sensing|| |
The acquisition of data about Earth's surface from a satellite orbiting the planet or other long-distance methods.
|Robinson Projection|| |
Flattened globe map
Size or measure according to a scale
the piece of land on which something is located (or is to be located)
physical position in relation to the surroundings
|space-time compression|| |
the reduction in the time it takes to diffuse(send/ship) something to a distant place, as a result of improved communications and transportation systems
|spatial analysis|| |
the study of geographic phenomena in terms of their arrangement as points, lines, areas, or surfaces on a map
|stimulus diffusion|| |
a form of diffusion in which a cultural adaptation is created as a result of the introduction of a cultural trait from another place
|time zones|| |
region of the Earth that has adopted the same standard time
the name by which a geographical place is known
|Prime Meridian|| |
0 degrees longitude
a planned undertaking
|relocation diffusion|| |
The spread of a feature or trend through bodily movement of people from one place to another.
