Back to the Basics: Birmingham, Alabama, Measurement and Scale
Handley, Lawrence R.; Lockwood, Catherine M.; Handley, Nathan
Journal of Geography, v104 n5 p225-230 2005
"Back to the Basics: Birmingham, Alabama" is the fourth in a series of workshops that focus on teaching foundational map reading and spatial differentiation skills. It is the second published exercise from the Back to the Basics series developed by the Wetland Education through Maps and Aerial Photography (WETMAAP) Program (see "Journal of Geography" 103, 5: 226-230). Like its predecessor, the current exercise is modified from the Birmingham Back to the Basics workshop offered during the annual National Council for Geographic Education meeting. The focus of this exercise is on scale and measurement, foundational skills for spatial thinking and analysis.
