As of November 29, 2019, the optional mapping tool activity for Entry 1 has been changed over to a new mapping tool. The new tool will work a bit different, so please see the instructions on how to make a post to the new map under the Entry 1 instructions.
Any recently added items to the old tool have not been lost. Please see this link for a backup of any data posted before this date.
This adjustment will not have any impact on student grades. Students can proceed with the Final Project as detailed in the course.
The Final Project requires you to provide information and analyze this information for different regions of Canada.
The project consists of the following activities (total 45% of your final mark):
Your first entry will provide you with an opportunity to share your sense of place (pages 4 and 8–9 of your textbook, and Unit 1) about your location. Using the tools provided, you will create a marker and place it on an interactive online map, and use your posting to describe some features and elements of your community. As each student completes this part of the assignment, more markers will appear on the map. Take time to view other markers and learn something about different communities! You will also enter the information into your journal.
Part A: Collect Your Posting Information
Decide on a city/community that you want to share with others.
Because you will be entering information into two areas: Shared Map Form and your journal, we recommend that you first take time to collect all the information required into a word processing document so that you can cut and paste the information directly into the areas.
Create a document in a word processing program. Save the document with the title: YourName_GEOG2221_FinalProject.
Give your first entry a title, “Sense of Place,” and complete steps 1 through 4 below.
Your first entry will provide you with an opportunity to share your sense of place (pages 4 and 8–9 of your textbook and Unit 1) about your location.
The information required for Entry 1 is:
Once completed, save the document. You will add to this document by answering the questions in Entries 2–5.
Part B: Creating a Pin on the Shared Map
When you’re ready to create the pin, go to the Shared Map site. You’ll find both the map where your selected location data will be displayed and a web form where you will enter your data. Click on the View Map button and look at existing pins to learn about someone’s community and also to see what you will be creating. To get started with making the pin, click the Add Map Location button.

Instructions for Completing Major Project: Post 1— Sense of Place

Final Project Entry 1 Mapping Tool Instructions
On the Collaborative Map Form, start by filling in the text directly into the Your Answer area for:
The form must have data in each Your Answer area before it can be submitted. Complete the steps below to get your photos into the pin
You must enter something into all the text boxes of the form to create a pin.
Note: It is especially important to have a unique address for the house/property, since the pin will be placed at this exact address. If you use an address that is identical to one already on the map, your data will over write the existing data and therefore someone else’s pin will be lost.
After you have entered data into all the text boxes, confirm that in the check box that you are not a robot, and click Submit. It may take a few minutes before your pin appears on the Shared Map. View the other pins to see what others have shared about their community.

In this part of the Final Project, you will analyze one region of Canada. Select a region to write about that is not the region that you are using for the mapping exercise (e.g., not the region you are living in (perhaps for school), or not your “home” region).
Choose one of the six regions of Canada and write a 1500 word report (approximately 6 written pages, double-spaced), supported by figures, tables, and maps. Make full use of the material in your textbook, but also use the Statistics Canada website or publications available at your local library, newspapers, magazines, books, the internet, the TRU student library service, and other sources to find up‐to‐date information. Please use a minimum of six external resources, including peer-reviewed journals.
You are encouraged to use sub-headings to separate sections of your report, although you are free to organize your report in any way you wish. Frame your report with an introduction and conclusion, and include a title page. Similar to the written assignments, you will use APA citation format. Be sure to look at the grading rubric as a guide for how marks are awarded!
