Transcript of The 5 themes of Geography: Edmonton

By: Noor Oada Edmonton Introduction Edmonton is the political, intellectual and spiritual capital of Canada's fastest growing province, Alberta. It is the heart and soul of the west and the gateway to Canada's immense north!!! Edmonton has a population of 1 million. It has one of the lowest population densities of any major North American city. That is about 67 times less than the population density of New York City! Despite the slow highways, short summers, and very long winters – snow falls in October and won’t melt till late April- Edmonton is also known as the City of Champions for its amazing history of successful professional and amateur (Olympic) sports teams/individuals, and a tourism hot-spot, having one of the world's largest shopping mall, the largest stretch of urban parkland in North America and an array of diverse attractions, from the Great Divide waterfall (24 feet higher than Niagara Falls) to historic Fort Edmonton Park. Introduction Location Relative Location Location Absolute Location Relative: A location can be relative - examples: next door, nearby, a short drive, down the road a ways. Or, it can be in the same general location as another location - example: next to my locker A region is an area that is defined by certain similar characteristics. Those unifying or similar characteristics can be physical, natural, human or cultural Region It is about 298 km almost due north of Calgary

About 245 km from the Alberta/Saskatchewan border

On Provincial Route 2N

Alberta is located in both the northern and western hemispheres

Specifically positioned in west-central Canada, a part of North America

Alberta is bordered by the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories, and the U.S. State of Montana. Absolute: A location can be absolute (specific) as in coordinates of a map using longitude and latitude Edmonton, Alberta is 53.5472° North Latitude and 113.5006° West Longitude. . Place A place is an area that is defined by everything in it. All places have features that give them personality and distinguish them from other places.

Language Region Edmonton, Albert is know as a Formal region.

It can also be know as a Vernacular Region: The West Movement Movement Movement refers to the way people, products, information and ideas move from one place to another. This can be local such as how did you get to school today, or it can be global such as how did humans get to North America? Cell phones

Water supply How do people adapt to the environment? The winter in Edmonton fells very extended. The bitter cold frost doesn't only nibble on the ends of our fingers and toes, but also bites the middle and end of many of our seasons. the temperature can reach up to -50 °C. Snow falls in October and won’t melt till late April. People adapt to this weather by wearing heavy duty, comfortable, warm clothes. Mid-February October January As I stated previously with the very long winters- concluding to the very short summers- most likely people have their heaters on all year round. But when summer finally has a chance to come with the beautiful fresh air, and the nice summer heat, people will be outside enjoying it while it lasts :) How do people modify the environment? In conclusion, I think Edmonton is a great place to live in. It has a nice environment with great people around you. It does have its up's and down's but what doesn't. I lived there from 2008-2011 and I honestly loved it here. With West Edmonton Mall and the Rexall Arena to keep me entertained, William D. Cuts Junior High to keep me educated and Jasper and Banff to provide a great place for a enjoyable family vacation, I truly think it is the heart and soul of the west and the gateway to Canada's immense north!!!
