GEO 215 Week 1 Expanded Applications of GIS/GPS Paper
 

Resource: Ch. 1 of Introduction to Geography

Write a paper consisting of 350- to 700-words that develop an expanded understanding of geographic information systems (GIS) and geographic positioning systems (GPS) for your current or future career field and how it is used today. Research and discuss two the following aspects:

 

 

 

Relationships of the geographical subfields and how they might be incorporated into a GIS/GPS application in your field.
 

 

Research if there are ways to obtain training on applying GIS/GPS in your specific career field. Would you find these types of trainings helpful? Why or why not?
 

 

Changes that trigger other changes, such as natural disasters. How can GIS/GPS be applied to track the changes and help us understand potential threats like global warming, recurring events, or natural disasters within your perspective career field and/or regional areas.

GEO 215 Week 3 Urbanization Analysis, Green Options & Global Warming Strategies Part 1
 

Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper ensuring that the content is academically well researched, practical and realistic.

Consider the following scenario: You work preparing for climate change in an urban city planning department and you will be presenting your findings to city leadership. Your role is to identify and review the key practical needs of an urban society and how they are being met today along with helping city leadership plan a recommended changeover to greener products and processes. You will also strategize and prepare for the potential global warming projections for your city.

 

 

 

Select an existing city or create your own, it can be large or small.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Identify the site and provide a map of your city along with a physical description of the land, topography, etc.
 

 

Research the global warming projections for your area and address them.
 

 

Provide an analysis of how the climate has shaped the land up to this point and a projection of how the physical land may change in the coming years due to climatic effects.
 

 

 
 

 

 

 

 

Identify the needs and services of this urban society. 

 

 

 

Consider the kinds of energy used (coal, oil, gas, etc.), local food production versus transporting food in, clean water availability, air quality, transportation, education, cost of living, employment, healthcare, landfills, etc.
 

 

Determine if the way that key urban needs are met today is sustainable and/or harmful to the environment and need to be replaced by greener options.
 

 

 
 

 

Research and identify greener options for the city to implement for power, water, and other urban needs. Discuss how your city can start to introduce them. Explain how the practical greener options you have presented help the environment, reducing the cost of environmental cleanup in the future and reducing healthcare costs for the population. Discuss funding & planning options if possible, and methods to overcome potential barriers or resistance to the proposed changes.
 

 

Summarize your research and present your proposed options.
 

 

Include 3 to 5 references; one can be your textbook.

Format your assignment consistent with APA guidelines.

GEO 215 Week 4 The Historical Dispersion of a Popular Agriculturally Grown Food Product
 

Select one agriculturally grown food that interests you, such as a popular food item, a specific agricultural product, a cultural food staple, or a type of food.

Trace the history, development, global discovery, and diffusion of your selected food item into popular culture in a presentation.

Create or locate a map that illustrates the spatial distribution of your selected food product. This will be either a global or national map depending on:

 

 

 

Where the food has dispersed and spread over time or within a specific time frame.
 

 

Who was affected by the dispersion of this food and what human dispersion it may have caused.
 

 

Answer the following in your presentation:

 

 

 

Where did your selected food item originate? Was it a part of the original locations’ cultural practices? What cultures is the food popular in today? Are there multiple language names for this popular food?
 

 

Where did it spread and why? Discuss if the historical spread of this food is related to colonialism, trade practices, and/or the slave trade. Did groups of people migrate voluntarily or involuntarily due to the dispersion of this food?
 

 

How did it spread? What types of transportation were/are involved?
 

 

What are the commonalities of the geographic locations to which it spread? What are the commonalities of the cultures to which it spread?
 

 

Are any historical, cultural, ethnic, or religious events associated with this food?
 

 

How is it used today?
 

 

Submit your assignment in one of the following formats consistent with APA guidelines:

 

 

 

A concise 8- to 10-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation with cited speaker notes and references in APA. Concise bullets must be on the slides along with cited notes if needed (in the Notes section below the slides). Be sure to spellcheck and edit your presentation.
