The Nature of Geography
Geography explores the relationship between the Earth and its people through the study of place, space and the environment.
Geographers ask the questions where and what; also how and why and, in the context of problems, how ought. It forms a bridge between the physical and human sciences.
Study is done at local, regional, national, continental and global scales.
