  • Five Themes of GeographyJamaicaBy Jorge

  • Absolute Location

    The country that I am studying is Jamaica. The reason why I chose Jamaica is because it is tropical and I think that tropical places are beautiful. The continent that Jamaica is located is in North America. The capital of Jamaica is Kingston. Absolute location is finding the exact location of a place on Earth using longitude and latitude lines. The absolute location of my country is 78 degrees North longitude and 28 degrees West latitude.

  • Relative LocationRelative location is finding a place on Earth using the cardinal directions The relative location of Jamaica is Columbia South, North Carolina North, Puerto Rico East, and Mexico West.

  • Human Characteristic of PlacePlace is a human and physical characteristic. The two parts that its divided into is human and physical characteristics. A human characteristic is something that is man made. A human characteristic for Jamaica is the aqueduct. The aqueduct was built between 1760 and 1780. The aqueduct is 559 meters long. This is one of the few aqueducts in jamaica.

  • Human/Environment InteractionHuman/Environment interaction in geography is how people harm or help the environment. One example of Human/Environment.
