THE WORLD IN SPATIAL TERMS
To understand and appreciate our world, it is important to understand the patterns of organization of the physical and human aspects of our planet. From how landforms define and shape our world to how people adapt—and sometimes alter—them, the relationship between the two defines our planet. In this program, students will learn about cartography and technologies such as GIS, GPS, and databases that geographers use to help us see the regular and recurring patterns in Earth’s physical and human systems. These tools not only help in analysis, but also help to make our planet a more comprehensible and fascinating place.
