Geography is the science of
PLACE, SPACE AND ENVIRONMENT
Each place on earth is distinguished by a unique mix of natural resources, cultural practices, and economic and political systems. However, no place exists in isolation, and events in one corner of the globe not only have consequences next door, but thousands of miles away. Geographers study what makes each place unique, and the connections and interactions between places.
