Question description

The physical environment creates natural contexts for human settlement, and detailed analysis and mapping of environmental data can form a strong regional understanding of critical environmental conditions and issues to be addressed in public policy as a starting point for data-driven practical collaboration across the region.

The initial video in class demonstrates the complexity of our own region and illustrates a number of regional issues based on the natural environment. Usually these issues relate to recognition of hazards, sensitive or critical areas for development, or resource areas of significant value or opportunity, such as scenic park systems, that need regional analysis and agreement across the Watershed. View this video and answer the following questions. If you saw the video in class you may proceed to the quiz. You are allowed to retake the quiz if you need a refresher.
