Pattern is the design of spatial distribution Pandemic is a worldwide outbreak of a disease Epidemic is a regional outbreak of a disease Spatial Perspective is observing geographic phenomena across space The Five Themes are derived from special perspective of geography Location highlights how the geographical position of people and things on the Earth’s surface affects what happens and why.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
