Geography

Geography is the study of the surface of the Earth - the physical and human landscapes that, together, make our planet unique.

Geography is the science that seeks to understand and explain spatial distributions; where things are located and, more importantly, why things are located where they are.

To answer these questions, geography is an integrating science. Geography brings together elements of both the physical and social sciences to explain the spatial distribution of phenomena, how and why places differ from one another, and how people interact with their environment.
