GEOG 571
Intelligence Analysis, Cultural Geography, and Homeland Security

1.12 Summary and Final Tasks



This lesson provided you with a brief introduction to geography and cultural geography, with an emphasis on the importance of space, place, and scale as analytical concepts. It also introduced you to ArcGIS Online and StoryMaps as tools for analyzing and presenting data; we will use these again at various points in the term. The concepts and exercises in this lesson are designed to foster a spatial perspective that you will continue to develop and use.
