Geography and Geology


The distribution of phenomena has long been a favorite topic of study by geographers. The studies of distributions were mainly descriptive during geography’s infancy as a discipline, but one finds today that behavior and process have also become important considerations. This thesis is designed to study the residential location patterns associated with military personnel stationed at Offutt Air Force Base, near Omaha, Nebraska using cartographic analyses. Additionally, process and time are considerations that will be examined, because location patterns also need to be explained. He also concluded that lower ranks of both groups were more apt to reside in apartments, trailers or rental housing.
