Answer one of the following questions. 1. The Internet has an interesting effect on geography. Some may argue it is the death of geography because it eliminates the significance of distance. Others believe that instead of catalyzing dispersal, the Internet encourages concentration of economic activities. Which side of this debate do you agree on? Support your opinion by real-world examples. 2. What is GIS? What are some of the fields that GIS can contribute to? Choose one field that is interesting to you and research on a real world example of how GIS is applied to that field. You may do some supplementary research online – be sure to include your sources of information. Assignments must be in prose form (do not turn in an outline). Complete assignments should be at least 300 words (excluding references). You must use and cite at least two sources (e.g. the text, peer reviewed articles, reputable web pages). Do not simply quote material in the text and the source, but paraphrase appropriately and use your own words.
