Question Description

Maps with Narrated Screencast focused on HydrosphereEach MAP SET should map the SAME data set, but at 3 different scales. Each MAP SET must include one URL for a 30 second -- one minute screencast which compares and contrasts verbally and shows with a pointer the physical geography patterns in the map at the global, regional, and local scales.Your MAP SET (3 Maps, 3 descriptive paragraphs and one URL screencast) should be submitted all on ONE single .doc or .pdf.This adds up to a total of 12 original maps, each with its own descriptive paragraph which explains BOTH the PATTERN and the PROCESS in the map.

n each of your 4 maps you should highlight a physical geography "feature and process" from one of earth's spheres. A physical geography natural feature is one that you can observe on the Earth. A geography process is what causes of the natural feature to occur.


Cumulonimbus clouds (a part of the atmosphere), are a natural feature that occur in more than one area. A field trip stop may view this feature along the San Gabriel Mountains of Southern California, particularly during the summer in the afternoon. The field trip tour and pamphlet should explain that the process that forms cumulonimbus clouds at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains is orographic lifting, when air hits the mountain, rises, cools and water condenses to form clouds.

Your screen shoot should like this 
  • Be original, and cite all data
  • Be visually appealing, using bold color or font
  • Each map should display data from only one of earth's spheres.
  • Contain a descriptive paragraph caption (5-10 sentences, college level writing) which describes the process and patterns shown in the map.
  • Contain a scale bar, north arrow, and descriptive title.
  • Be easy to see and read.
  • Contain a functioning URL with a screencast.
