Introduction to Geography
In this lesson, using rule of area differing as a basic clue and making environment region as centering concepts , system of united geography was discussed. Panorama of geography, main questions and developing directions were reflecting as possible.
to supply in outline form the underlying principles of constructive cartography. It is also intended to illustrate the development of the scientific system of today and the educational value of this branch of human activities. A knowledge of the horizontal and vertical location of places and the configuration of the earth's surface are essential factors in carrying on the major activities of a nation.
"The Advanced Placement Human Geography course reflects the content of a typical college level survey introductory
course in human geography. Through the five goals of the course, students will refine their analytical and problem
solving skills using creative and critical thinking to develop abilities to:
• Use and think about maps and spatial data.
• Understand and interpret the implications of associations among phenomena in places.
• Recognize and interpret at different scales the relationships among patterns and processes.
• Define regions and evaluate the regionalization process.
• Characterize and analyze changing interconnections among places."
Introduction to Remote Sensing
This course introduces students to the basics of remote sensing, characteristics of remote sensors, and remote sensing applications in academic disciplines and professional industries. Emphasis is placed on image acquisition and data collection in the electromagnetic spectrum and data set manipulations. This course is designed for geographic information systems (GIS) students interested in imagery analysis.
Upon Successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Keep a fieldbook for various projects
Plan a level loop
Plan a Boundary Survey
Plan a Topographic Survey
Prepare a field sketch for a project
Locate appropriate records to begin a boundary Survey
Describe map projections and calculate surface distances
Understand different types of surveys, and the tools required for each
Geographic Information System
This presents a comprehensive and rigorous analysis of GIS-T applications in the analysis and planning of transportation systems.
Introduction to Earth Science
An introduction to physical geology
Geomorphology is the study of solid Earth’s surface features. Some workers in clued the landforms of other terrestrial-type planets and satellites in the Solar System within the scope of geomorphology. Geomorphology investigates landforms and the processes that fashion them, with chapters on weathering and related landforms, hillslopes, fluvial landscapes, karst landscapes, glacial and glaciofluvial landscapes, periglacial landscapes, aeolian landscapes, leoss landforms, coastal landscapes, Plate tectonics and landscapes, folded landscapes, faulted landscapes, and volcanic landscapes.
Physical Geography of China
Physical Geography of China study of how the elements of physical geography in China and the role of different scales of geographic areas; in the interaction and contact between them, how to form an intragrated regional natural geographical features; and for different characteristics and problems, how local conditions to develop, use, protection and management. This course embodies the characteristics of geography - the systematic, comprehensive and regional.Through this course of study, students will train comprehensive analysis and correlation analysis, master the basic theory and research methods of the regional physical geography, and have a full understanding of China's natural and geographical conditions, which for the follow-up study, work and study lay the foundation.
introduce the overview of climatology basics, including a discussion on climatology versus meteorology and an introduction to the atmosphere. then introduce more advanced concepts, such as microscale transfer of energy, matter, and momentum; the global water balance; global atmospheric circulation; climatic classification with special emphasis on the regional differences within the same climate types; and much more.
Economic Geography is the discipline to answer the economic question with a spatial dimension. Economic Geography deals with spatial economic issue and stress the importance of space and place in economic activities. This course is to introduce the basic theories and methods in economic geography. Through this course, students will master the fundamentals of economic geography and build up a base for further study and research in advanced economic geography.
Introduction to Environment Science
Principle of Urban Planning
The principle of urban planning is an important required foundation course of urban planning major and related fields. content covers almost basic principles of all of professional knowledges involved in urban planning processes. This course itakes the planning theory, principle and layout method as a basis and urban element planning as the core content. This course focuses on teaching urban planning methodology and basic contents, the relationship of urban planning with regional planning, natural conditions and environmental factors affecting urban construction after providing an overview of the modern urban planning system structure and the evolution history of urban planning thoughts, theoretical methods and practice at home and abroad. According to the requirement of the urban master planning, the course introduces how to determine the urban nature and development scale, to plan the layout of urban elements including industrial land, storage and logistic land, and regional traffic, urban road system, living community, public space. The course also introduces the urban heritage conservation and urban renewal, urban disaster prevention and mitigation, urban agglomeration planning and town and village planning. Finally, through analyzing different types of urban planning and urban planning alternatives, the course is to train a comprehensive planning ability of students on basis of urban planing principles.
