This project is built around a geographic database — i.e., it contains geographic information.
Geographic information is any information that is tied to a place — and place is what geographers study.
The database was built with information collected from a variety of sources.
You can explore geographic information in many ways :
on a static map, an interactive map, interactive database (data table), etc.
On this page are some exercises that will help you explore our project data using the many ways that this site offers —
data tables, maps, audio, video, text, and images. There will be more exercises posted here over time.
We hope that you will enjoy learning many geographic skills and become curious enough to ask your own geography
questions both from this project, and in general by completing these exercises and creating your own.
As always, please share your findings, thoughts, and comments in the space below each post.
