DIGITAL MAP – GREEN ZONES OF BURGAS.

SEA GARDEN
Dear partners, this is our attempt to create an online map of our city. It is linked with the green areas in our city and the biggest one is the Sea garden. We have described many of the trees in it. It is fantastic throughout the year. We shall proceed depicting other green spots and will try to understand are these green spots enough to provide fresh air to our city and to us. The Sea Garden has been built in the distant 1910 by the gardener Georgi Duhtev, who turned the bare windy space between the city and the sea into one of the most beautiful parks in Bulgaria. Thanks to his passion for exotic vegetation, there are still hundreds of species of plants from all continents in the garden that import exotics, and the old part of the Sea Garden has been declared a monument of park art. The area of the park is 600 decares and its length is more than 5 km. It will take you a few hours if you want to go around it all.
 

HOW TO MAKE A MAP WITH GOOGLE EARTH

This is a video, with an educational character that has been made by our teacher Viktor Stoev and our student Ioanna Simeonova about how to make an electronic map on the platform Google Earth. This is how to select and draw areas with certain content, for example, green areas, parks, residential areas, industrial parts, roads, and others. One can use different tools to put various views, pictures, aspects. You can do it, easily, don’t worry, you can cope with it.

HOW TO MAKE A CHARACTERISTICS OF A PLACE

Place studies

Character of a place refers to the physical and human geographic characteristics that distinguish a particular place. Since these features can change over time the character of a place can change over time, too.

Place studies must apply the knowledge acquired through engagement with prescribed specification content and thereby further enhance understanding of the way students’ own lives and those of others are affected by continuity and change in the nature of places. Sources must include qualitative and quantitative data to represent places in the past and present. If possible, students can also conduct fieldwork in their local area. Depending on your location, students may observe examples of urban expansion and the environmental changes that occur in the form of newly created subdivisions, residential apartment developments and business service development. These are such things as: shopping centres; office complexes; business parks or office towers; road and rail infrastructure or additional amenities such as schools and parks.

Suitable data sources could include:

  • statistics, maps
  • geo-located data
  • geospatial data, including geographic information systems (GIS) applications
  • photographs
  • text, from varied media
  • audio-visual media
  • artistic representations
  • oral sources, such as interviews

 

Abiotic environmental factors. All components of inanimate nature are included. They are the landforms and rocks  the sunlight, temperature, relative humidity and other components of the climate and the environment, such as soil aeration, soil fertility, natural radiation, etc.

Biotic environmental factors. This is the totality of the impact of the vital activity of some organisms on the existence and development of other organisms. Some organisms serve as food for other organisms. Plants (producers) serve as food for herbivores (first-order consumers). They, in turn, serve as food for predators (second-order consumers). Or some organisms are the habitat of other organisms (host – parasite).

Anthropogenic environmental factors. The set of human activities that cause a change in the environment. One of the consequences of the impact of anthropogenic factors is the change in the habitats of organisms, which threatens their existence. The history of mankind is the history of his labor. Its beginning is hunting followed by the emergence of agriculture, industry, transport, etc., which leads to a strong change in the nature of the Earth. These modifications have an impact on human health and economic activity. This raises the problem of environmental protection through the rationalization of human activity and, above all, the rational use of natural resources. The identification of anthropogenic factors as a kind of ecological factors makes sense of the connection of ecology with environmental protection and gives this science an applied character in various terms – geoecology, engineering geoecology, agroecology, medical ecology and others.
