- How are Regions defined?
- Through the use of aerial and satellite imagery, geographers and other scientists have been able to get vast amounts of data describing places all over the face of the earth. Remote sensing is the science of acquiring and analyzing data without being in contact with the subject. It is used in the study of patterns of land use, seasonal change, agricultural activity, and even human movement along transport lines. This process relates closely to GIS. See also Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
- Area where there is a coherent structure of areal units organized into a functioning system by lines of movement or influence that converge on a central node or trunk (e.g. USF's service area).
- Why is GIS useful?
- Lines of longitude that extend from pole to pole and intersect parallels of latitude.
- a functional region
- b meridian
- c Human constructs
- d Facilitates geographical analysis
- e remote sensing

5 True/False questions
A map constructed to give a highly generalized view of a large area. → large-scale map
What are the sub-types of regions? → Formal, uniform, functional (modal)
The distortion caused by the transfer of three-dimensional space on Earth's surface to the two dimensions of a flat map. → projection
A measurement that denotes position with respect to the equator and the poles. It is measured in degrees, minutes, and seconds, which are described as parallels. → latitude
A means of determining exact or absolute location. Latitude and longitude are most often used. → coordinate systems
