Determine Natural Resources

Water Sources: the availability of water (rivers, springs, wells, and summer dews) and the technology to store (cisterns, reservoirs) and channel (aqueduct) this vital liquid is a limiting factor in the creation of settlements.

Natural Resources: the proximity of natural resources such as mineral deposits, quarries, bitumen, and salt are a determination in settlement patterns.  This may transcend normal decisions in inaccessible and arid regions based on over riding economic concerns.
