Final Project: Part 2 Assignment  INST 115

25 points

The Final Project is intended to demonstrate how geographic location influences
employment opportunities as well as preferences in where someone would like to live in
the future  something students will have to consider as they begin a job search.

For the second part of the Final Project, students will research, collect, and analyze
physical geography, climate, and population data based on locations identified in the
first part of the project. If students did not have three cities or counties turned in with
Part 1, students will need to identify or revise their location selections, as needed.

Requirements

Students will collect and provide the following information for each of the three cities or
counties they selected from Part 1:

 Identify the latitude and longitude coordinates
 Describe the physical geography of each city/county and immediate surrounding
area
 List the potential environmental hazards of each city/county and immediate
surrounding area
 Identify the climate type (like those described in lecture notes); average temperature,
and average precipitation
 Identify the total population and specify whether the population total is for the
city/county itself or includes the city metro area. Also, provide the year the
population data was collected.
 Location Description/Personal reflection  Based on the information collected for
Part 2, which of your three locations appeals most to you? Why? Describe aspects
you like and dislike about each location that helped you form your decision.
 Copy/paste links for data sources as indicated on templates (as applicable if you use
additional sources for information)
 Copy/paste Google Earth maps on separate map template
