Nature of Geography

Geography is a dynamic subject that is firmly grounded in the real world and focuses on the interactions
between individuals, societies and the physical environment in both time and space. It seeks to identify
trends and patterns in these interactions and examines the processes behind them. It also investigates the way that people adapt and respond to change and evaluates management strategies associated with such change. Geography describes and helps to explain the similarities and differences between spaces andplaces. These may be defined on a variety of scales and from a range of perspectives.
