Transcript

  • 1. THE BASICS OF GEOGRAPHY : Region
  • 2. REGIONS
    • Regions are artificial creations that geographers use to divide the world into sections which can then be compared with other units or studied in more detail on their own
    • There are three types of regions: formal, functional, and vernacular
  • 3. FORMAL REGIONS
    • Formal regions are those regions that are specifically spelled out by government bodies
    • Example: The Rocky Mountains, The Malay Archipelago, a country's borders
  • 4. FUNCTIONAL REGIONS
    • Functional regions are those regions that exist because they serve a particular function
    • Example: school boundaries, Congressional districts, etc.
  • 5. VERNACULAR REGIONS
    • Vernacular regions are those regions that are very loosely defined by people’s understanding
    • Example: The South, The Middle East, South Pacific
