Re gi on s? Chargers, do your DEEDS! D: E: E: D:

define explain example draw In groups, you will need to DEEDs the three types of regions: (1.) Formal region (2.) Functional (nodal) region (3.) Perceptual (vernacular) region Formal (Uniform) Region Definition: area where everyone shares in

common one or more distinctive characteristics. Explanation: some formal regions share a characteristic with equal intensity, while in others the characteristic is predominant, not universal. The shared feature could be cultural, like a common language; economic, like the production of a particular crop; or physical, like climate. Example: Montana is an example of a formal region, characterized with equal intensity throughout the state by a government that passes laws, collects

Functional (Nodal) Region Definition: area organized around a node or focal point. Explanation: The characteristic chosen to define a functional region dominates at a central focus or node and diminishes in importance outward. The region is tied to the central point by transportation or communication systems or by economic or functional associations. Example: The reception area of a radio station is an example of a functional region.

The stations signal is strongest at the center of its service area and the signal gets weaker as you increase your distance from the center. Similarly, a department store attracts fewer customers from longer distances as these customers will choose Radio stations in the U.S. Perceptual (Vernacular) Region Definition: an area that people believe to exist as part of their cultural identity. Explanation: Vernacular regions emerge

from peoples informal sense of place rather than from geographic models. A useful way to identify a perceptual region is to have someone draw a mental map an internal representation of Earths surface. A mental map depicts what an individual knows about a place, containing personal impressions of what is in the place and where the place is located. Example: Americans refer to the South as a place with environmental, cultural, and economic features perceived to be quite distinctive from the rest of the U.S.

However, what one perceives to the South Perceived regions of the U.S.
