The first who must be acknowledged is my late father, Cliff Hanks, who many
years ago bought my first subscription to National Geographic magazine and
ignited my interest in other places, peoples, and cultures. I have never stopped
learning about geography since receiving that first issue. I am in the debt of many
scholars and professors at the University of Missouri and the University of Kansas
, where I received several degrees in the discipline of geography. The
department at ...

a meridian circle pass through the zenith of any place, the arc intercepted
between the zenith and the equator is called the Latitude of that place. Thus Z
being the zenith of any place, and EKQ the equator, the latitude of the place is the
arc ZE. 267. Assuming the meridian circle that passes through the zenith of any
particular place as the FIRst MERIDIAN, the arc of the equator intercepted
between the first meridian and the meridian circle passing through the zenith of

We have suggested that the first great transformation of the planet arising from
the evolution of people was their capacity to adapt to different environments and
to improve and consolidate their strategies for procuring food. Dependent upon
these developments, but deriving from them only partially, some human societies
evolved social and economic systems of relative complexity that allowed them
both to consolidate within 'national' boundaries and simultaneously to enlarge
political ...

His first published article in 1948 was perhaps the first by any geographer on
African Americans. His hypothesis of the mobility transition (an increase in rural
to urban migration followed by an increase in intra- and interurban migration with
modernization) is a significant complement to the concept of demographic
transition (a decrease in death rates and, subsequently, birth rates occurring with
modernization) both operationally and intellectually. He was the first geographer
to write ...

Newer models based on ABM are more likely to be built as simulations with
massive amounts of intelligent geographic entities, each represented at the
atomic scale, connected and interacting dynamically in space as complex
adaptive systems. Agent-based models belong to a family of models called
automata. Automata have distinguished origins in pioneering work on digital
computing during the 1930s and 1940s. Automata tools were first employed in
geography as cellular models ...
