In my own words, geography simply means “how people and the earth interact with each other.” In reality, the definition of geography is far more complicated. To geographers, the study is about not only the interaction between humans and the environment, but how it is used, how populations are distributed, and their effects. Why and how all of these aspects behave like they do is a subject for debate within the field, and one that will tackled in later posts. Yet, their methods all remain relatively the same: observation. What should be observed and how is up for debate (as always), but the methods of note-taking, interviews, scientific collection, and analyzing are a constant within the field.
