Geographer » Overview


Geographers study patterns resulting from the relationship between human activities and the Earth's surface; they study locations to learn more about the world. Geography is a very broad topic and geographers either specialise in physical geography or human geography. Physical geography is concerned with the surface of the earth and natural phenomena. They look at things like terrain, distribution of water, ecosystems and the relationships between different living organisms. On the other hand, human geographers study things like the urban environment, the distribution of medical services and impact of the natural environment on human activities. Regardless of area of specialisation, geographers collect data, make precise observations, and interpret and analyse data.
