  2. b theory and practice of making visual representations of the earth's surface in the form of maps
  3. c maps that use isolines to represent constant elevations. If you took this map out into the field and walked exactly along the path of an isoline on your map, you would always stay at the same elevation.
  4. d geographer from the University of California at Berkeley who defined the concept of cultural landscape as the fundamental unit of geographical analysis.

  2. describes the amount of social, cultural, or economic connectivity between two places.
  3. the study of the interactions between societies and the natural environments they live in

5 True/False questions

  1. topological spacethe amount of connectivity between places, regardless of the absolute distance separating them.


  2. Robinson projectionprojection that attempts to balance several possible projection errors. It does not maintain completely accurate area, shape, distance, or direction, but it minimizes errors in each.


  3. situationthe relative location of a place in relation to the physical and cultural characteristics of the surrounding area and the connections and interdependencies within that system; a place's spatial context.


  4. environmental geographythe intersection between human and physical geography, which explores the spatial impacts humans have on the physical environment and vice versa.


  5. regionthe actual shape of the earth, which is rough and oblate, or slightly squashed; the earth's circumference is longer around the equateor than it is along the meridians, from noth-south circumference.
