Understanding place

It seems like there are a lot to understand about a place.
Here ares some aspects about our new place
  • Climate
  • Geology
  • Hydrology
  • Solar exposure
  • Topography
  • Ecology: flora, fauna, mycology
  • Soil
  • Demography
  • Agriculture: where does my food come from
  • Economy
  • Government: agencies and representatives at city, county, state, nation, global level
  • City systems: city services, power, gas, water, storm water, sewage
  • Architecture
  • Society
I am thinking it would be nice to put together something like a scrap book with all those different sections and add to it as I gather more and more information on each topic.
Some of them would be good as map overlays. Some as photos with captions. Or maybe it would be better as a blog of sorts. It will take some experimenting to figure out something that makes sense.
