Transcript of 5 Themes of Geography
In the 2010 Census there were 608,660 residents living in Seattle. The Seattle metropolitan area has 142.5 square miles, land area of Seattle: 83.87 sq. miles. Water area of Seattle: 58.67 sq. miles Regions Detroit Michigan relative location: Absolute Location:42º.33 57' N, 83º 04' W Detroit Human/Physical Characteristics
It is a very historic town with alot of diversity, rich culture, and a busy night life. Also the Detroit River is located here.
They have completely urbanized the city, not much wildlife in the city, consist of mostly buildings, roads and highways. Human/Environmental Interactions We completely urbanized the city. Making skyscrapers and highways.
People depend on a large diversity of supplies from the area, including water over 49,000 miles of rivers and streams. Also including big reserves for oil and natural gas. Also a large amount of fertile soil with very expansive forests. The Detroit Movement The most popular race(ethnicity) in Detroit is Black.
The economy of Detroit is very good, many say that there are so many jobs they don't know if there are enough people to fill them. Most of the jobs are in the engineering department There are no big chain Grocery Stores in the 140 square miles of the city, but their are over 40 liquor stores, also part of the Collaborative Visibility idea that they came up with. Which includes bringing national business markets to the city. Regions Of Detroit The Formal region of Detroit is actually just Detroit because those boundaries were made up by the government. In a recent study showing that there is a problem that most of the inhabitants in Detroit are functionally illiterate! People from there usually are known as "Detroiters" Trinidad, Bolivia Latitude: 10.4
10° 24' 0" N
10 degrees, 24 minutes, 0 seconds North
61° 18' 0" W
61 degrees, 18 minutes, 0 seconds West Physical characteristics include: Trinidad, sits at just 237 meters above sea level, the average temperature during the winter (June through August, also the dry season) is 68ºF (20ºC) and between 75ºF and 85ºF (24ºC and 27ºC) during the rest of the year. Trinidad's Place Human Characteristics include: Christopher Columbus discovered the island on the voyage for the new world, over a course of time in was ruled by Spain and everyone on the island became slaves, most of the people living there are either African American or East Indian, when they became slaves most of them were sent to America to work in the coal mines, but after slavery ended, some of the inhabitants that were shipped off from their home were taken back to their home! In 1686 the city was discovered right off the banks of the river the Mamore river, But due to large amounts of flooding around 1769 the city was forced to relocate 14 kilometers away from its original or what thought to be the original location of the city.
It is a very tropical environment so naturally the Human Environmental
Interactions They modify it by tearing down forests, lakes and rivers to build buildings, highways, dams and roads. Party politics has generally run along ethnic lines. The city was founded in 1686 by Padre Cipriano Barace. In 1769 the town moved to its current location, 9 miles away, due to flooding. The original city was on the Mamoré River, but flooding and disease forced a move on the location of the city. It is located in the province of Cercado, one of Beni’s eight provinces. Movement Regions Trinidad, located in the Bolivian tropics, is hot and humid most of the year. This region of the country is heavily forested and many large rivers (all tributaries of the Amazon river) run through Beni. Like most cities in Bolivia, it is built around a central plaza with a large Catholic cathedral as its centerpiece. Trinidad was originally a small Jesuit town but is now a large city with over 100,000 inhabitants. Its mission-style church was demolished and rebuilt in 1923. Despite these changes, many of the original religious relics, paintings and statues are still housed in the cathedral, which faces the main plaza.
Trinidad is known as the city of motorcycles, that being the preferred mode of transportation. Georgetown, Guyana Relative Location Absolute location:
6°48′N 58°10′W / 6.8°N 58.167°W / 6.8; -58.167. Place of Georgetown, Guyana Georgetown is located on Guyana's Atlantic coast on the east bank of Demerara River estuary. The terrain in this part of the country where the city is located is flat coastal plains. The city is surrounded by a blanket of cane fields along with marshy swamps, and savannah lands on its east and south. The Elevation of the land is one metre below the high tide level. This low elevation is protected by a retaining wall known as the seawall to keep the ocean out and an innovative network of canals with kokers to drain the city of excess water. Physical Characteristics: Human Characteristics: Georgetown is Guyana's largest city and it contains a large portion of the major businesses. It is an important city for Guyana and the Caribbean. Within the metro area there is the CARICOM headquarters, the Administrative Arm of the Caribbean Regional Integration Organisation. Georgetown also is home to a seaport. Guyana's international airport, Cheddi Jagan International Airport, an hour south of Georgetown is a destination for Caribbean Airlines (the airline formerly known as BWIA or ""bwee""), Delta Air Lines, LIAT, META, and Travel Span GT. Human/Environmental Interaction The people in Georgetown, Guyana rely on the environment for there ferry system. They also rely on the technology of paved roads to travel long distances. That also goes with the bridges that they have built over the smaller waterways to make travel easy. Before they had more advanced road ways, they used two major railroad systems. The railroad was used for cargo and passengers alike. The name of the railroads were-the Demerara-Essequibo Railway and the Demerara-Berbice Railway.
But there are also problems with the technology that they have there with there sewage and chemical dumps into the water supply which is a very important need for suvival is water.
They are also cutting down most of the forestry in Guyana with is having a impact on the Environment and the people. Movement In Georgetown, Guyana Christianity and Hinduism are the dominant religions in Guyana. Data from a 2002 census on religious affiliation indicates that approximately 57 percent of the population is Christian. The composition of that population is:
Pentecostal, 17%;Roman Catholic, 8%;Anglican, 7%; Seventh-day Adventist, 5%; and other Christian groups, 20%.
Approximately 28 percent is Hindu, 7 percent is Muslim (mostly Sunni), and 2 percent practice other beliefs, including the Rastafari movement and the Baha'i Faith. An estimated 4 percent of the population does not profess any religion. Regions Georgetown - referring to Central Georgetown includes the Business district as well as the seat of the national Government.
Greater Georgetown - contains some of the most expensive and luxurious metropolitan neighbourhoods. Bel Air Park, Bel Air Gardens, Lamaha Gardens and Bel Air Springs are well known ultimately as places for the rich and powerful. Most residents here are high ranking executives or government officials. These close gated neighbourhoods of the city are mostly concentrated in the northeastern part towards Greater Georgetown and the Atlantic.
South Georgetown - incorporated communities of neighbourhoods along the eastern bank of the Demerara River such as Sophia, Roxanne Burnham Gardens, Albouystown, Guyhoc Park, and Agricola. This is a well known and highly regarded poor area of the city. Some places like Houston Estates, Ruimvelt and Thirst Park have retained high levels of affluence. Seoul, South Korea Absolute Location: The absolute location of Seoul, South Korea is 37* North and 126* East Human and Physical Characteristics Seoul proper is noted for its population density, which is almost twice that of New York and eight times greater than Rome, though slightly less than Paris. Its metropolitan area is the densest in the OECD. Nearly all of Seoul's residents are Korean, with some small Chinese and Japanese minorities. As of 2009, the city’s population is 10,208,302. The number of foreigners living in Seoul is 255,501 in 2010 according to Seoul officials. As of the end of June 2011, 10.29 million Republic of Korea citizens lived in the city. This was a .24% decrease from the end of 2010. As of June 2011, 281,780 foreigners were located in Seoul. Of them, 186,631 foreigners (66%) were Chinese citizens of Korean nationality. This was a 8.84% increase from the end of 2010 and a 12.85% increase from June 2010. The next largest group was Chinese citizens who are not of Korean nationality; 29,901 of them resided in Seoul. The next highest group consisted of the 9,999 United States citizens who were not of Korean nationality. The next highest group were the Republic of China (Taiwan) citizens, at 8,717. Relative location of Seoul is located on the DMZ zone, on the Korean peninsula. Seoul is in the northwest of South Korea. Seoul proper comprises 605.25 km2, with a radius of approximately 15 km, roughly bisected into northern and southern halves by the Han River. The Han River and its surrounding area played an important role in Korean history. The Three Kingdoms of Korea strove to take control of this land, where the river was used as a trade route to China (via the Yellow Sea). The river is no longer actively used for navigation, because its estuary is located at the borders of the two Koreas, with civilian entry barred. The city is bordered by eight mountains, as well as the more level lands of the Han River plain and western areas. Human/Environmental Interaction Forests were cleared over many centuries for use as firewood and as building materials. However, they have rebounded since the 1970s as a result of intensive reforestation efforts. The country's few remaining old-growth forests are protected in nature reserves. Large mammals such as tigers, bears, and lynx were once abundant throughout the Korean peninsula. However, they have virtually disappeared due to human settlement, loss of forest habitat, and over-hunting.
There is also natural disasters in Seoul and or Throughout South Korea. There are anything from winterstorms to typhoons. And anything from Flooding to Earthquakes. Movement in Seoul, South Korea Seoul has fourteen subway lines that interlink every district of the city with one another and with the surrounding area. The majority of the population now uses the public transportation system due to its convenience and low cost. With more than 8 million passengers a day, Seoul has one of the busiest subway systems in the world. In addition, in order to cope with all of these transportation modes, Seoul's metropolitan government employs several mathematicians to coordinate the subway, bus, and traffic schedules into one timetable.
There are two tiers of taxis - Regular ( , Ilban taxi), and Deluxe ( , Mobeom taxi).
Seoul is connected to every major city in Korea by railroad. Seoul is also linked to most major Korean cities by the KTX bullet train which features a normal operation speed of more than 300 km/h, making commuting between cities extremely convenient for commuters and tourists.
Seoul is connected to every major city in Korea by railroad. Seoul is also linked to most major Korean cities by the KTX bullet train which features a normal operation speed of more than 300 km/h, making commuting between cities extremely convenient for commuters and tourists.
Seoul's bus system is operated by the Seoul Metropolitan Government. It consists of four primary bus configurations available that service most of the city.
Seoul has many big intercity/express bus terminals. These buses are connecting Seoul and cities all around Korea. Region Korea has traditionally been divided into a number of unofficial regions that reflect historical, geographical, and dialect boundaries within the peninsula. Many of the names in the list below overlap or are obsolete today, with Honam, Yeongdong, Yeongnam, and the modern term Sudogwon being the only ones in wide use in South Korea.
The names of Korea's traditional Eight Provinces are often also used as regional monikers.
Gwandong: Gangwon region
Haes: Hwanghae region
Honam: Jeolla region
Hoseo: Chungcheong region
Kwanbuk: North Hamgyng Province (or Hamgyng region generally)
Kwannam: South Hamgyng Province
Kwans: P'yngan region
Gyeonggi: Gyeonggi region
Yeongdong: eastern Gangwon region
Yeongnam: Gyeongsang region
Yeongseo: western Gangwon region Tokyo Japan! Relattive location: Japan is an island country in East Asia. Located in the Pacific Ocean, it lies to the east of China, Korea and Russia, stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea in the south. Human/Physical Characteristics Human characteristics in Tokyo
are sushi, sumo wrestling and kimono. these is japans cultural life.
Mt. Fuji is the highest mountain of the Japanese archipelago or cluster of islands which stretch from Russia in the Northeastern Pacific almost down to Taiwan in the South China Sea, reaching an incredible height of 12,388 ft. === These islands are mountainous with very little arable land, as a result of mountain ranges rising from the sea floor. Thus the Japanese are a seafood eating, tunnel building and gardening society. Absolute Location: - 36 00 N, 138 00 E Human/Environmental Interaction Built the panama canal. The way Japan depends on the environment of Tokyo is by Tokyo's fishing and crops from vertical farmland. They have built roads and buildings. They have built gardens they use air conditioning.
clear forest for timber and agricultural land
build cities with concrete
grow crop plants
burn fossil fuel
destroy habitat of other animals
hunt whales and other endangered animals, causing extinction Movement Prior to 1868, Tokyo was known as Edo. A small castle town in the 16th century, Edo became Japan's political center in 1603 when Tokugawa Ieyasu established his feudal government there. A few decades later, Edo had grown into one of the world's most populous cities. With the Meiji Restoration of 1868, the emperor and capital moved from Kyoto to Edo, which was renamed Tokyo ("Eastern Capital"). Large parts of Tokyo were destroyed in the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 and in the air raids of 1945 Region of Tokyo Kanto is a sort of large district which has several prefectures including Tokyo Metropolis in Japan Alice Springs, Australia Relative location: Absolute location: Latitude: 23° 41' 60S -23.7000
Longitude: 133° 52' 60E 133.8833 Place Physical:
The region around Alice Springs is part of the Central Ranges xeric scrub area of dry scrubby grassland and includes the MacDonnell Ranges which run east and west of the city and contain a number of hiking trails and swimming holes such as Ormiston Gorge, Ormiston Gorge Creek, Red Bank Gorge and Glen Helen Gorge. The 223-kilometre (139 mi) long Larapinta Trail follows the West MacDonnell Ranges and is considered among the world's great walking experiences.
The Simpson Desert, south-east of Alice Springs is one of Australia's great wilderness areas containing giant red sand dunes and interesting rock formations such as Chambers Pillar and Rainbow Valley.
The town of Alice Springs straddles the usually dry Todd River on the northern side of the MacDonnell Ranges. Alice Springs is located in Central Australia, also called the Red Centre, an arid environment consisting of several different deserts. Human/Environmental Interaction Alice Springs has many historic buildings including the Overland Telegraph Station, the Old Courthouse and Residency and the Hartley Street School. Adelaide House,a beautiful stone building in the middle of the Mall, Central Australia's first hospital, was designed and built by the Rev John Flynn, founder of the world's first flying doctor service, in 1926. It was also the site of the world's first successful portable wireless radio experiment conducted by Alf Traeger. Today it is a museum, one of several significant tourist attractions which forms part of 'The Flynn Trail' a self-guided urban heritage trail.
Today the town is an important tourist hub and service centre for the surrounding area. It is a well-appointed town for its size, with several large hotels, a world class convention centre and a good range of visitor attractions, restaurants and other services.
They also built trains and tracks, the have highways that make long distance travel more possible. Sewage systems. Human:
According to the 2006 census, Aboriginal Australians make up approximately 18.8% of the population of Alice Springs and 27.8% of the Northern Territory, although the census figure for Alice Springs is likely to be an underestimate. As Alice Springs is the regional hub of Central Australia, it attracts Aboriginal people from all over that region and well beyond. Many Aboriginal people visit regularly to use the town's services. Aboriginal residents usually live in the suburbs, on special purpose leases (or town camps), or further out at Amoonguna to the South and on the small family outstation communities on Aboriginal Lands in surrounding areas.
Araluen Centre for Arts and Entertainment – Alice Springs Cultural PrecinctThe Alice Springs Town Council governs the Alice Springs area, which takes in the town centre, its suburbs and some rural area. The Alice Springs Town Council has governed Alice Springs since 1971. The Alice Springs council consists of 9 members, the Mayor and 8 aldermen.
Alice Springs and the surrounding region have five elected members to the Northern Territory Legislative Assembly. There is one elected member of the Federal Parliament in the Australian House of Representatives for the area outside of Darwin, the Electoral Division of Lingiari. Movement in Alice Springs The Arrernte Aboriginal people have made their home in the Central Australian desert in and around the site of the future Alice Springs for thousands of years, with evidence suggesting Indigenous occupation of the region dating back at least 30,000 years. The Aboriginal name for Alice Springs is Mparntwe. Many Arrernte people also live in communities outside of Alice Springs and on outstations. Alice Springs has been referred to as the lesbian capital of Australia,. Analysis of same gender dual occupancy and household ownership figures from the Australian Census appears to substantiate the claim. The large population is attributable to the Pine Gap Women's Peace Protest of 1983 which created a critical population mass and continually self-sustaining lesbian community The region around Alice Springs is part of the Central Ranges xeric scrub area of dry scrubby grassland and includes the MacDonnell Ranges which run east and west of the city and contain a number of hiking trails and swimming holes such as Ormiston Gorge, Ormiston Gorge Creek, Red Bank Gorge and Glen Helen Gorge. The 139 mile long Larapinta Trail follows the West MacDonnell Ranges and is considered among the world's great walking experiences.

Island continent between the Indian Ocean and the South Pacific Ocean. Place Sydney, Australia is located in a coastal basin bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the east, the Blue Mountains to the west, the Hawkesbury River to the north and the Woronora Plateau to the south. Sydney lies on a submergent coastline, where the ocean level has risen to flood deep river valleys (rias) carved in the sandstone. Human and Environmental Interaction Australia experiences a range of 'natural disasters' including bushfires, floods, severe storms, earthquakes and landslides. These events cause great financial hardship for individuals and communities, and can result in loss of life, which has become part of Australian folklore.
People have damaged environment by cutting trees , adding pollution by making HUGE factories Movement in Sydney, Australia Australia is a large exporter of coal, iron ores, tin ores, wool, beef, barley, and raw sugar. They also export a number of natural resources and commodities including Liquified Natural Gas.
Australia's strengths lie in its mining sector. Main export items are: coal, iron ore, bauxite, uranium, gemstones, woodchips, natural gas, wool and grain crops Regions Like many major cities, Sydney's residents, known throughout Australia as 'Sydneysiders', refer to different regions of the City by different names. These areas don't always correspond directly to official boundaries of suburbs, or local government authorities, but instead refer to broader, and occasionally less well defined areas. This is a brief description of the regions of Sydney.

Bibliography Location of Mcmurdo Bay, Antartica Absolute location:
90 degrees south and 0 degrees east Human/physical Characteristics The physical characteristics arent that exciting because it is really just a solid piece of ice. Relative location:
basically the south pole Human and Environmental Interactions there was an earthquake of a magnitude of 6.5 but with hardly any people there it is hardly noticable. it is located very close to but it is not inhabited except for the military base there. Movement McMurdo has a harbour, the world's most southern. There is a road from McMurdo to the South Pole, the South Pole Traverse.
McMurdo is serviced seasonally by three airports:
Pegasus Ice Runway
Sea Ice Runway
William’s Field we built shelter and made heat to keep from freezing to death. Region of Mcmurdo Bay This would be considered a formal region because of the air fields down there and the scientific research there. There arent many people there but to us it would basically be known as the South Pole. Location of Paris France Absolute:
Paris: (capital city) 48° 51' N, 2° 21' E Relative: Located in western Europe, France is geographically positioned in the northern, as well as the eastern and western hemispheres.
France is bordered by the countries of Andorra, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Italy, Monaco, Spain and Switzerland, and by the English Channel, Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea Human and Environmental Interaction In France, the people use many nuclear plants to produce energy. the plants produce mass amounts of smoke and chemicals. these chemicals produce pollution for France. The bioproduct of the nuclear reaction is radioactive material. This material is harmful to the environment. the french also are a part of deforestation to build homes and other structures. on the other hand, France plants trees and is part of the go green program. you could say that France has both negative and positive reactions towards the environment.
Paris has experienced few major natural disasters. They have had severe flooding on the Seine (especially in 1910), which although it did not take many lives, endangered or destroyed many historical places and and artworks. The Gare d'Orsay, which today houses one of the finest art collections in the world, was severely flooded. All of the subways were completely flooded. Movement The MPF is a souverainist party which supports the "national independence" of France within a Europe "of peoples and co-operation". Unlike the United Kingdom Independence Party, it does not support France's withdrawal from the EU but rather a massive overhaul of it. The MPF is a strong critic of what it sees as excessive bureaucracy and technocracy in the EU. Its various proposals include
Restore the rule of national law over European law.
Ceasing negotiations over the accession of Turkey to the European Union, and begin a process of privileged partnership with Turkey and other Mediterranean countries.
Allow the countries of Europe to form their own, independent foreign policies.
Follow a policy of respect of national borders and control of immigration.
Put the national Parliaments in the middle of European construction and giving them veto power on the vital interests of the people which they represent.
Put the European Union and the euro at the service of the growth and employment.
Found a European preference for industry and the services, as for agriculture.
Opposition to the Lisbon Treaty and halting the ratification process.
Draft a "fundamental treaty" of the European Union based on a free association of independent nations and peoples Region France is divided into 22 "régions" each "région" is divided into a few "départements". There are 95 départements in métropolitan France. Paris is in the Ile de France "région" and it is the only city in France to be a "département" as well.
So administratively it is impossible to locate Paris in more than one way other than to say that it is in the Ile de France région. Geographically you can say it is in the middle of the Northern half of France. Location of Rome Italy Absolute Location: The absolute location for Rome Italy would be 41º 53º North, 012º 30º E Place The country is basically a peninsula with a unique boot shape, extending into the blue waters of the Mediterranean. Surrounded by seas on all three sides, Italy possesses a distinct beauty of its own.
The Geography of Italy has two mountain ranges, namely the Alps and the Apennines
approximately 9.5% of the population consists of non-Italians.Much like the rest of Italy, Rome is predominantly Roman Catholic, and the city has been an important centre of religion and pilgrimage for centuries, the base of the ancient Roman Religion with the pontifex maximus and later the seat of the Vatican City and the pope. Before the arrival of the Christians in Rome, the Religio Romana (literally, the "Roman Religion") was the major religion of the city in classical antiquity. Relative Location:
On the West coast of Italy, South of Pisa and North of Naples. Human/Environmental Interaction they have natural disasters from floods to Earthquakes and Avalanches. They Have built snow machines and buildings for shelter just like almost everywhere else in the world.
They depend on the environment for there food and water resources, without them there wouldnt be any people.
Rome's movement might be the Roman Catholic faith, or the atounding amount of tourists that visit each year. The last part of movement in Rome would be some of the ideas and products that came to Rome. A good example is how Austraillian Uggs reached the United States when they immigrated there. Rome's movement would definently be more future first Region
Rome's in the Lazio province. And Rome is considered Central or Southern or South/Central Italy.
Place Geography of Rome is characterized by the Seven Hills and The Tiber River. Rome city situated on the eastern banks of river Tiber Rome lies to the west of the Apennine Mountains that forms the backbone of peninsular Italy. Being close to the Tyrrhenian Sea, Rome experiences a Mediterranean climate.Rome is popularly called 'the city of seven hills'. These seven hills namely, Viminal, Quirinal, Palatine, Esquiline, Capitoline, Caelian, and Aventine were separated by marshy land and the River Tiber. Of these seven hills, the Caelian, Esquiline, Quirinal and Viminal hills were portions of a volcanic ridge. The Aventine, Capitoline, and Palatine hills formed the western group of hills. In ancient Rome each of the seven hills had separate walled cities.
Brazzaville, Rep. of the Congo Absolute location: The absolute location of Rome, Italy, is latitude 41 degrees, 53 minutes north and longitude 12 degrees, 30 minutes east.
In the centre of Africa, in the tropics. Are you after the DRC or Congo Brazzaville? Both are heavily forested tropical, wet plenty of rivers.
Place The city is 506 km (314 mi) inland from the Atlantic Ocean and south of the equator. The city is a commune that is separated from the other regions of the republic; it is surrounded by the Pool Region. Around the city is a large savanna. The town is relatively flat, and situated at an altitude of 317 metres Human Environmental Interaction All of there natural disasters are really just seasonal flooding which happens like 1 a year, then they have some wildfires that actually help the land in the long run
Catholic 50.5%, Protestant 40.2%, Muslim 1.3%, Animism 2.2% Baha'i 0.4%, other 2.2%
The population in 1988 was 2,688,426, of whom 43 percent was less than fifteen years old. Bangui's population has increased because of forced labor in the hinterlands in the colonial period and, since independence, urban attractions and economic opportunities.
Movement Running for one's life has become an everyday matter for the people in this part of the world. Revenge killings between rival tribes, the Hema and the Lendu, have turned Ituri into one of Congo's most volatile regions. Families in Congolese villages usually have 4 or 5 children, the same as many North American families. Kids live with parents who love them, make sure they have what they need, and correct them when they do something wrong.
But there is a difference in how it feels to grow up in a Congolese village family. Life in Congo is more open, more shared with the people living around you. Think about it this way:
Region It borders the Central African Republic and South Sudan to the north; Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi in the east; Zambia and Angola to the south; the Republic of the Congo, the Angolan exclave of Cabinda, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west; and is separated from Tanzania by Lake Tanganyika in the east Ibadan, Nigeria absolute location: Geographic coordinates:
10 00 N, 8 00 E Place
Ibadan is located in southwestern Nigeria in the southeastern part of Oyo State about 120 km east of the border with the Republic of Benin in the forest zone close to the boundary between the forest and the savanna. The city ranges in elevation from 150 m in the valley area, to 275 m above sea level on the major north-south ridge which crosses the central part of the city. The city's total area is 1,190 sq mi ( relative location: Ibadan is located in south-western Nigeria, 128 km inland northeast of Lagos and 530 km southwest of Abuja Human Environmental Interaction There is massive flooding, a dam collapse killing many children.
The country has over 50 languages and over 250 dialects and ethnic groups. The three largest ethnic groups are the Hausa-Fulani who are predominant in the north, the Igbo who are predominant in the south-east, and the Yoruba who are predominant in the southwest.
The Edo people are predominant in the region between Yorubaland and Igboland. Much of the Edo tend to be Christian while the remaining 25 percent worship deities called Ogu.
There are eleven (11) Local Governments in Ibadan Metropolitan area consisting of five urban local governments in the city and six semi-urban local governments in the less city. Movement
The Islamic Movement in Nigeria is a religious and political organization, based in the northern region of the country. Both Shia and Sunni participate in the movement Region Regions since 1914 are given with Lagos Federal District formed in 1954. The regions gained self-rule on 1 Oct 1954. Military governors were installed after the coup of 15 Jan 1966. During the abolition of federalism 24 May - 31 Aug 1966, the regions were redesignated "groups of provinces," and the governors continued in office under the new designations. In 27 May 1967 the regions were dissolved and 12 states created instead.
