Geography In My Life

Leave a comment

Geography is everywhere I go and has to do with everything around me on a daily basis. When I am waking up I have to get in a shower then eat breakfast and get ready for school. The snow affects me as it is colder outside, I have to wear boots so my feet don’t get wet from the deep snow and dress warm for the cold weather. I have to keep a look out for traffic, people and animals that are on the way to unbc for instance this morning I seen two moose’s standing outside watching people drive by, they have been affected by Geography as this was once their natural forest area of home. Now we have moved in here and they have no where to go so they don’t go any where because it’s still their home as they know it.  Also I have to keep an eye on traffic as it gets very busy around Prince George, especially in the winter with all the deep snow thats been pouring on for the last week or two. I am also dealing with geography when im deciding how and which way im going to school, where im jumping on the bus and jumping off, Or when I am going to sit down on the bus when i get on the bus.

Regions – formal, functional, perpetual

Region divides the world into manageable units for geographic study. Regions have some sort of characteristic that unifies the area. Regions can be formal, functional, or vernacular.

Formal regions are those that are designated by official boundaries, such as cities, states, counties, and countries. For the most part, they are clearly indicated and publicly known.

Functional regions are defined by their connections. For example, the circulation area for a major city area is the functional region of that paper.

Vernacular regions are perceived regions, such as “The South,” “The Midwest,” or the “Middle East;” they have no formal boundaries but are understood in our mental maps of the world.

Formal Regions – This Formal Region area is known as British Columbia

Functional Regions – This Functional area is known as Prince George B.C.

Vernacular Regions – Prince George is known As “Up North”

Definition of GIS

Leave a comment

A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information.

GIS allows us to view, understand, question, interpret, and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts.

A GIS helps you answer questions and solve problems by looking at your data in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared.

GIS technology can be integrated into any enterprise information system framework.
