Basics to Human Geography Chapter 1 - Distribution

Distribution is how everything on the Earth's surface has a physical location and is organized in some fashion
Three Aspects of Distribution density, concentration, pattern
Density how often an object occurs within a given area
Population/Arithmetic Density numper of people / amount of all land in a given area
Population/Arithmetic Density people per square kilometer or mile
Physiological Density total number of people / arable land
Physiological Density more accurate measure of population density
Concentration refers to the proximity of a particular phenomenom over the area in which it is spread
Clustered/Agglomerated objects are close together
Dispersed/Scattered objects are spread out
Pattern relates to how objects are organized in their space
Linear when a pattern is laid out on a singular line
Centralized if the pattern is clustered together
Random Distribution when there is a lack of pattern on the landscape
Spatial Distribution physical location of geographic phenomena across space
