1.1.1.1 Cities provide housing,jobs,education, medical care
1.1.1.2 1/2 world population now live in cities - and number increasing
1.1.1.3 Fastest growing cities tend to be in poorer countries Mexico city is expected to be in top 3 largest city
1.2 WORLD POPULATION DISTRIBUTION
1.2.1 WESTERN EUROPE - low lying gentle sloping, pleasant climate, easy communication and resources for industry - DENSELY POPULATED
1.2.2 AMAZON FOREST - hot,wet, communication and settlement difficult due to thick vegetation - SPARSELY POPULATED
1.2.3 HIMALAYAN MOUNTAINS - Cold, steep slopes, difficult communication and settlements poor soil SPARSELY POPULATED
1.2.4 POLAR regions - very cold,no soil for farming, communication/settlement difficult SPARSELY POPULATED
1.2.5 SAHARA DESERT - too hot, dry, communication & settlement difficult SPARSELY POPULATED
1.2.6 BANGLADESH - low lying,flat,fertile soil hot & wet DENSELY POPULATED
2 POPULATION DENSITY - TELLS US HOW CROWDED A PLACE IS
2.1 DENSITY - is the number of people in an area
2.1.1 divide total population by total area = people per km squared
2.1.2 DENSELY POPULATED - Means that a place is crowded and has a high population density
2.1.3 SPARSELY POPULATED - means places with few people and low population density
3 FEW PEOPLE LIVE IN PLACES WITH FEW RESOURCES
3.1 Areas with extreme climates are sparsely populated
3.1.1 extreme temperature
3.1.2 lack of water/precipitation
3.2 Areas with high altitudes sparsely populated - poor soil, inaccessible steep slopes difficult for settlements
4 DENSELY POPULATED AREAS
4.1 Have habitable environments
4.2 wealthy and industrial eg europe/Japan
4.3 poor countries eg india/ethiopia
4.4 River valleys - sheltered/provide transport/good communication links eg ganges Valley in India
4.5 lowlands plains - flat fertile soil, easy communication eg Denmark
4.6 Rich in natural resources - sources for industries eg fossil fuels s Wales
4.7 Coastal Plains - moderate climate good access sea ports
