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 state of Iowa is a Formal Region. • The colored circles represent the percentage of households served by a TV station and are Functional Regions
