Medical Geography • John Snow mapped the cases of cholera in London in 1854. • With this analysis he discovered that cholera was spread by drinking infected water. http://www.globalsecurity.org/wmd/intro/images/cholera-snow-map.jpg
Globalization • The spread of economic activities from one country to many other regions. • The establishment of integrated industrial and service sectors world-wide. • Primarily an economic factor, it has enormous social and political consequences.
Local Diversity • It is ironic as the world becomes more globalized it has become more diverse. • People search for ways to express their unique cultural traditions and identity as a reaction to globalization. http://europeforvisitors.com/europe/images/plan_scotland_bagpiper_v.jpg
Distribution-geographers • Concern is about the arrangement of features on the earth’s surface. • 3 main properties of distribution are: • Density-the frequency that something occurs in a given space. • Concentration-changes in distribution-how close together-dispersed or clustered. • Pattern-the arrangement of the distribution of features in a given space.
Absolute location or mathematical location is the exact latitude and longitude coordinates of a place. • Relative location-the location of a place in relation to other physical or human features. • Centrality-the function of location relative to urban places, resources, productive farmland and efficient transportation systems. Cities for example dominate their locations economically, politically and culturally thus displaying centrality.

The Township and Range Systemwas created by the US Land Ordinance of 1785. • Each township is divided into 36 sections each 1 mile by 1 mile and numbered 1 in the NE and 36 in the SE. • The Homestead Act of 1863 encouraged the settlement of the West by giving each settler a quarter section or 160 acres of land.

This functional regions on this map are based on the linkages between large banks of major central cities and the correspondent banks that they serve in smaller towns.
The state of Iowa is a Formal Region. • The colored circles represent the percentage of households served by a TV station and are Functional Regions
