Schatz, 2 The term geographical interdependence revolves around the idea that the geography of the world, on all different levels, is connected in some manner. This concept may be validated in many ways such as international trade and the global economy. One country’s decision to create a change, for example, trade policies or tariff regulations, will affect another’s – hence the interdependence. In the wardrobe assignment each student is told to record the country in which every article of his or her clothing is manufactured to ultimately create a map. This fairly simple task holds a great value in the understanding of geographical interdependence on an individual level. By creating a map to visually represent a student’s wardrobe, it allows them to physically see the countries they depend on every day. These maps help draw attention to the fact that every person is a part of this geographical interdependence. While conducting this exercise I found that by taking a moment to learn where my clothing originates from, I am now able to better understand my personal geographical interdependence. The process of collecting data and creating a physical map led to my ultimate analysis of the exercise. A thorough description of the map, including the range of data, associations, trends and exceptions, may be broken down to further analysis. This analysis explains the factors, which influence the pattern and description of the map. The final question to be answered is how these clothes came to be a part of my own wardrobe, and how this information contributes to the principle of geographical interdependence. In the end, this exercise stresses the point that everyone in the world is connected one way or another, just as I have learned about my relations to other parts of the world through my wardrobe.
