Geography Notes
Geography
• The study of the earth’s
physical features and how
they relate to living things
Physical Features
The natural features on
the earth’s surface such
as mountains, rivers
and oceans
5 THEMES OF GEOGRAPHY
•

Location
Place
Region
Movement
Human-Environment
Interaction
LOCATION:
Where something is
located on the earth’s
surface
LOCATION:
Absolute Location
– exact spot on the earth’s
surface
– most common absolute
location is your street
address
LOCATION:
• Absolute Location can also
be determined by using
latitude and longitude
coordinates:
• Savannah is located at
32.05N 81.05W
LOCATION:
• Latitude – measures degrees of
distance north and south of the
equator
• lines of latitude are also called
parallels
Latitude
LOCATION
• Longitude – measures degrees of
distance east and west of the Prime
Meridian, which is located in
Greenwich, England
• Lines of longitude are also known as
meridians
Longitude
LOCATION:
• Relative Location – the location of one
place in relation to another place
• Based upon the cardinal (main) and
intermediate (in between) directions on a
compass
• Georgia is north of Florida
• Rincon is northwest of
Savannah
Place
• Physical and human characteristics
of places (how a place is “known”)
• Savannah is characterized by River
Street, moss-covered live oak trees,
the squares, the beach.
• China is known for its Great Wall.
Region
• An area of the earth that has
shared characteristics that
make it different from other
areas of the earth
• Includes language / dialect and
foods
Region
• Geographic Regions: In the
U.S. – North, South, East,
West, Midwest, Deep South,
Southwest, Pacific Coast,
Sunbelt etc.
Region
• Political Regions: nation,
state, county, city
• must have legal boundaries
and its own government
Region

»Population Regions:
Urban (city w/2500+ people)
Rural (community w/less than 2500 residents)
Suburban (heavy populated area near a city)
Metropolitan (MSA) (central city w/50,000+
residents or an area with a total population of
at least 100,000 with an urbanized area
w/50,000)
MOVEMENT:
• The shifting of people, goods
and ideas from one place to
another
• During the 1970’s there was a
massive migration of people
from the northeast to the
Sunbelt.
HUMAN-ENVIRONMENT
INTERACTION:
• The ways people interact with
their environment
• Includes dam building, logging,
beach combing, preparing for
hurricanes, etc.
Points to Ponder:
• What is the absolute location of EMS?
• What is Georgia’s relative location compared to her 5
bordering states?
• Georgia is located in what geographic regions of the United
States
• What are the four political regions in which you live?
• What example of movement have we experienced in our
area?
• How have you interacted with the environment in the past
month?
