8/25_Geography140 III. Divisions continued  Geographers are able to answer complicated questions by (spatial technology): o Amount of data digestible in GIS o Power of the location analysis that can be undertaken on a computer platform o The ease of analysis that is possible using GIS software applications o ex: Geography 412 used GIS to find new sites that would be good for community gardens 3. *Remote Sensing: a method of collecting data or information through the use of instruments (ex: satellites) that are physically distant from the area or object of study  images can be incorporated in a map  absolute location (precise point) can be studied over time by plotting change in remotely sensed imagery over time o ex: UNL’s CALMIT & National Drought Mitigation Center use remote sensing for agriculture  Dr. Jim Kalbert was head of CALMIT @UNL…passed away IV. Basic Geographic Concepts A. The 5 Themes of Geography (there’s no specific:order) 1. Location a. Highlights how geographical position of people and things on Earth’s surface affects what happens and why b. Helps to establish context within which events and processes are situated 2. Place Based on experience a. sense of place: infusing a place with meaning and emotion i. ex: fun vacation in California…you will see California as a fun place b. perception of place: belief/understanding of what a place is like, often based on Based on what books , movies, or pictures ; stereotypical and usually inaccurate you’ve heard/ideas i. creates mental maps: maps in our minds of places 3. Human-environmental Interactions a. Understanding relationship between humans & physical world i. Ex: Asking locational questions about reciprocal relationships between humans & environments b. Cultural landscape: the visible human imprint; the material character of a place i. Geographers regularly read the land“What is that, and why is it there?” 4. Movement a. Involves the mobility of people, goods, and/or ideas from a hearth to other areas b. aka diffusion: idea of movement from one place to another *one of many definitions used in geography i. ex: expansion, hierarchical (idea moves from one power to another) , relocation, contagious (moves to closest subject…the common cold) c. spatial interaction between places depends these factors: i. distances among places ii. accessibility of places iii. transportation & communication connectivity among places (networks) *one of many definitions used in geography
