Mapping Landforms 1. Discuss different kinds of landforms. Project the Landforms map and invite volunteers to point to the different landforms, name them, and read the descriptions. Which landform is the highest? You can project your state map using the National Geographic MapMaker Interactive and find locations of the different landforms students describe. 2. Project the Landform Map of Virginia. Point to different colors on the map, and have students use the map key to name the type of landform.Find the Piedmont. 3. Project the Landform Map of the United States. What are the highest mountains, marked on this map, in different areas of the country? The plains are where most country’s agriculture is. 4. Individually or in small groups, assign students one or two states to research the landforms. 5. Have a whole class discussion about the landform map.

Subregion A subregion is a part of a larger region or continent and is usually based on location. Cardinal directions, such as south or southern, are commonly used to define a subregion. United Nations subregions[edit] The Statistics Division of the United Nations (UN) is in charge of the collection, processing, and dissemination of statistical information for the UN.[1] In 1999, it developed a system of macro-geographical (continental) regions, subregions, and other selected economic groups to report advances towards achieving numerous millennial development goals worldwide. According to the UN, the assignment of countries or areas to specific groupings is for statistical convenience and does not imply any assumption regarding political or other affiliation of countries or territories.[3] Subregions by continent[edit] Afro-Eurasia[edit] Africa[edit] Eurasia[edit] Asia[edit] Europe[edit] Americas[edit] North America[edit] South America[edit] Antarctica[edit] Oceania[edit] See also[edit] References[edit]

40 more maps that explain the world Maps seemed to be everywhere in 2013, a trend I like to think we encouraged along with August's 40 maps that explain the world. Maps can be a remarkably powerful tool for understanding the world and how it works, but they show only what you ask them to. You might consider this, then, a collection of maps meant to inspire your inner map nerd. I've searched far and wide for maps that can reveal and surprise and inform in ways that the daily headlines might not, with a careful eye for sourcing and detail. I've included a link for more information on just about every one. 1. Data source: Oak Ridge National Laboratory, World Bank. Those dots represent people: the brighter the dot, the more people. 2. Click to enlarge. Human beings first left Africa about 60,000 years ago in a series of waves that peopled the globe. 3. (Wikimedia commons) The Mongol conquests are difficult to fathom. 4. Click to enlarge. This map shows the Spanish and Portuguese empires at their height. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Physiographic regions of the world The Physiographic Regions of the world are a means of defining the Earth's landforms into distinct regions, based upon the classic three-tiered approach by Nevin Fenneman in 1916, that further defines landforms into: 1. physiographic divisions; 2. physiographic provinces; and 3. physiographic sections.[1] This foundational model, which Fenneman used to classify the United States, was the basis for similar classifications of other continents later, and is still considered basically valid.[2] Introduction[edit] During the early 1900s, the study of regional-scale geomorphology was termed "physiography". Unfortunately, physiography later was considered to be a contraction of "physical" and "geography", and therefore synonymous with physical geography, and the concept became embroiled in controversy surrounding the appropriate concerns of that discipline. For the purposes of physiographic mapping, landforms are classified according to both their geologic structures and histories.

Explore a Tapestry of World Ecosystems The United States Geological Survey has published a new global ecosystems map of unprecedented detail. The map was produced by a team led by Roger Sayre, Ph.D., Senior Scientist for Ecosystems at the USGS Land Change Science Program. It is a mosaic of almost 4,000 unique ecological areas called Ecological Land Units (ELUs) based on four factors that are key in determining the makeup of ecosystems. Three of these—bioclimate, landforms, and rock type—are physical phenomena that drive the formation of soils and the distribution of vegetation. This Story Map Journal has two main features, an ecosystems browser and an ecosystem tour. In the ecosystem browser, opposite, point and click at any location on the map and the name of that ecosystem appears in a pop-up box. ​The ecosystem tour starts on the next page of this map journal. Click on the map at left to see the Ecological Land Unit at that location. Facebook Twitter Share Tap for details Swipe to explore Bioclimate: Cold Moist
