Geography is the study of places on Earth and their relationship with each other. It can also be defined as an integrated study of people, places, and environments. It includes both physical and human approaches. Geography employs a spatial perspective to analyze the interaction between humans and their environment. Geography is more than identifying locations or knowing about world regions; it is a unique discipline concerned with process and pattern, and nature and society.
Geography employs essential geospatial skills to help explain our world. We create and utilize maps and spatial data to interpret information from local to global scales. Geographers analyze patterns to solve problems. Geography integrates concepts from many different sciences and humanities to address current issues of local, national, and international importance.
