Applying new skills to established topics, this is how you want to examine human geography.

Introduction to Human Geography Using ArcGIS Online is a one-of-a-kind, introductory textbook aimed at college undergraduates and high school advanced-placement students. It covers the major themes of human geography, including population and migration, economic activity, language and religion, human impacts on the environment, and much more.

To enhance student engagement and understanding, the 12 chapters include mapping and analysis exercises using ArcGIS℠ Online. The exercises, accessed through a free Learn ArcGIS organization account, start with some basics, such as how to organize GIS layers on a map, and progress to such tasks as the following:

– Examining emigration and immigration flows between countries, and how and why people use the routes they choose.

– Describing the spatial distribution of racial and ethnic groups in a city, and reflecting on how spatial interaction helps create patterns via migration, economic choice, and discrimination.

– Identifying rates of urban growth and evaluating the reasons behind regional differences in growth rates.

Introduction to Human Geography Using ArcGIS Online bridges classroom lecture with live, current, interactive data for reinforced learning and a hybridized teaching approach. With this book, instructors can tailor classroom examples and homework assignments to local geography.
