GEOG 130 Online Activity 1: Geographic Distribution of Major Crop Production Introduction: In this activity you’ll explore the agricultural regions where the major crops of corn, soybeans, wheat and rice are produced to gain a better understanding of the connection between geography and food production. Instructions: Please respond to the questions below. Be sure to use a distinct font color or highlighting of your responses so I can identify them within the document. Once completed, save your answers and upload to Blackboard before the deadline. Use the ArcGIS Online link in the Blackboard menu (left side of the screen). • • • Log into your ArcGIS Online account Once signed in, click on “Map” at the top of the screen Today you’ll be using four maps of the crop production, to do this: o Click on the “Add” dropdown menu and select “Search for Layers” o In the second dropdown menu right below, set the option to ArcGIS Online, if it isn’t already o In the search box, type “Crop Yields Minnesota” and then hit “Enter” on your keyboard o In the results, you should see four maps that were produced by the University of Minnesota. One for Wheat, Corn, Soybean and Rice. Add all four to your map. 1. What does the term “yield” mean in this context? 2. Look at the item details for one of the maps. How did the University of Minnesota researchers calculate yield for these maps? 3. Using the four maps separately, give the general geographic area for a) high yields in the US and then b) high yields globally (you do not need to include the US in this column). High yields are shown in the darker purple. Crop Soybeans Corn US Geographic areas – High Yield (you can just give a general area such as “central US”, “eastern US”, “southern US”) Global geographic areas – High Yield (you can just give general continental areas such as “eastern Europe”, “central Asia”) Rice Wheat ...
