GCU 113 Project

Standard 3:Interpretting maps:The border states have the highest shares of the Mexican born population residing in the United States in 2006. In this map we can see the dangers and death tolls of these unfortunate situations and the impact that this has on the developing of the illegal population in America, especially the border states like California, Arizona and Texas Source: http://www.mauricesherif.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/Border-Death-Map.jpg

Standard 7: Different physical processes. I captured using the Google Earth tab in http://maps.goog.com./ This is an image of a beautiful landscape

GCU 113

Standard 18: Geography has many uses in the present and future: This traiditonal elementary school in Prescott Valley, AZ has great community resources: Library, Park etc.This image is from Google Earth, using Google MAPS

Standard 17: Agricultural Settlements Mapped in James McClintock's 1921, many of these settlements were near ancient canals. Canals are human-made channels for water, these were built to create settlements near mining shafts. Homesteaders flocked to the land surrounding the streams and rivers in the hopes of developing farmland but because of the dry land and air surrounding the settlements, farming was difficult to nonexperts.

Standard 9: HUMAN POPULATION ON EARTH'S SURFACEThis is a map that I used to illustrate a few Human Systems of Borderlands of Mexico/US.The frist are the illegal crossings between 2009 and 2012. This depicts a human systems on the borderlands.www.nationalgeographic.com


Standard 4: PHYSICAL AND HUMAN CHARACTERISTICS OF A REGION:This is also in Nogales, Arizona and this illustrates the cultural aspect of the Mexican Cultures. The vibrant colors and pottery demonstrates who this culture is.Source: http://www.arizona-leisure.com/gfx/nogales-street-shop-1-lg.jpg

Standard 16: Many types ofresources can be found along theborderlands. This is a photo from AJo, AZ, a borderland that uses this as a water source. I capturedusing the Google Earth tab in http://maps.goog.com./

Standard 15: on the right The physical environment greatly affects everyone: Aerial photo of flooding in Winkleman, AZ. The Gila River exceeded its banks and flooded the lower part of the town. Retrieved from Google Earth

Standard 11: Mexico and the US are economically dependent on each other: In this picture it illustrates the trade that goes through Mexico to the US to Canada. This picture seems to illustrate that most of the trade that is of goods goes through mexico to areas through Texas through midwest US.

Standard 10: CULTURE: This image depicts that Mexico is mainly Roman Catholic and the USA is mainly Christian. http://i.imgur.com/FIXGlYC.jpgN/A, N/A (2014, October 15). Religion.

Standard 12: Patterns and functions of human systems: This is important in terms of discussing how the city continues to grow and how these new functions has a way of developing society to influence new growth of population. Nogales, AZThe city website has a Developmental Service webpage (http://www.nogalesaz.gov/Nogales-Information-and-Development-Center/) that discusses the development of new structures. Norman, G. (2012, August 31). Nogales

Standard 14: Humans can alter the environment dramatically: we see the modification of city scape growth, the growth of city buildings and growth of city scape landscape. In the second example, we see the destruction of urban development that has become "brown" in 2011. In the third example you can see the growth of urban development in areas that were undeveloped before, meaning the growth of population has grown substantially.I capturedusing the Google Earth tab in http://maps.goog.com./

Standard 5: A perceptual region has been clearly identified in teh geographic region standard 5, based off of this standard in Education, a perceptual region. This kind of region is strictly based on perceptions of the specific region; whether or not these perceptions are based on culture, expierence, or opinion, they still shape the way people think and percieve the people who live there. N.A, N/A. (2014, October 22). Mexico/America. Retrieved fromhttp://1.bp.blogspot.com/_Zj9-w7no6Gg/S_4D-l2-0kI/AAAAAAAAADE/9s1O3LojSyg/s1600/Mexican_American_Flag.png

Standard 13 Focus: The borderlandshave plenty of conflict. Many times over drug cartels but the US and Mexico cooperate as well to work through it. Found this image on Google Maps. It is the border between Mexico and US.

Standard 8: This picture is an example ofthe Yuma and Colorado River. It depicts the focus for this standard. I captured this image on http://maps.goog.com./, ThroughGoogle Earth.

Standard 6 Focus: My own cultural perceptions and background. I would say this picture of me depicts my culture and my background. I was raised in a small farming community. I am very republican and come from a "cowboy" kind of town. This changes my views on bordertowns and perceptions.

Standard 2: I thought first about where a near city may be that I could easily fit into and provide shelter. I looked on Google maps for areas with high population and low security. This is my MENTAL MAP.
