1     Physical Environment


1. Here we can see the vegetation zones of Thailand. It also shows the names of the major mountain ranges and rivers. Its useful in creating a mental picture of what Thailand will look like in certain areas. https://worldview.stratfor.com/article/geopolitics-thailand-kingdom-flux

3     Human Environment

1. Many ethnic groups call Thailand home. Above shows the different groups in categories and where they are locationally. http://legacy.lib.utexas.edu/maps/middle_east_and_asia/thailand_ethnic_1974.jpg

2. This map shows the GPD per capita in 2011. The gradient is from red to green, green being higher GDP areas. This shows us that Thailand is overall not economically healthy, Rayong being the area with the best economy, significantly higher income. Surprised by this I investigated further and found that this outlier is because the GDP was calculated by where you work, not where you live. A lot of people not living in these areas work here because there are a lot of factories, but live elsewhere. So really Rayong resident make average wages, itís not really a wealthy town. http://www.geocurrents.info/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Thailand-GDP-by-Region-Map.png


3. This map shows higher education in Thailand. It breaks it into 2 separate maps, 18-29 years old and 35 to 44 years old. The younger generation has significantly higher education, which shows that education opportunities are getting better. However, 27% being the highest parentage is still really low. http://www.cartographie.ird.fr/images/thailande/educ.gif
