Investigation 4: Where are the cities?

Extensions and Enrichment

Students compare an image showing nighttime lights in the United States with atlas maps in order to identify major cities and relate population distribution patterns to the physical environment. By locating cities and physical features identified in the nighttime image on an outline map, students become more familiar with important locations in the United States. They also use atlas maps and geographic information to identify NASA images of areas around several major cities.
