The Importance of Geography Geography is a focus within the educational for understanding and clear up issues about the environment and continuous development. It is also an important part of natural and social sciences. As scientist study geography, they encounter different societies and cultures. Eratosthenes in 276–194 BC was the first person to use the word “geography”. However, there was documentation found for recognizable methods of geography, like cartography like map-making prior to the use of the term geography.
Geography is natural in everyone’s lives. It is all around us and it’s helping to instill discussion for the world, its environments and its peoples. Geography assembles us to have an improved understanding of our individual world. There are two major important parts of geography and they are Economic and region. Economics plays a very big role in geography. Economics is the branch of knowledge concerned with the management, consumption, and deportation of wealth.
This is important in developed nations. United States is a developed country economics allows researchers to understand the formation of the United States and its economic contact with other areas around the world. Not only is it important to developed countries it’s also important to developing countries because the logic and methods of development are more easily understood with the use of economics. Geographical areas such as the United States and China have the ability to obtain economic growth at a more rapid pace as compared to third world countries such as Africa whose economic status hinders their geographical growth. Religion is large part of geography. Religion is the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods.
Religion and geography is known as religious geography, in which geographical concepts are changed by religion. Such as early map-making, and the biblical geography that advanced in the 16th century to arrange places from the Bible. A majority people are born into their religion and have no choice but to stay in them. Geography has a major impact on this, because it depends on where you’re born. For example, If you were born in Canada you are most likely to be of Christian faith than any others. This is because 67.3% of Canada’s population is Christian.
The Amish community is against this new discovery. If you leave the Amish community, they think you’re working with the devil and his telling you to leave the bishop. In the 16th century christianity was the biggest religions and this means the influence of religion shaped our world. Geography is the science dealing with the provincial differentiation of the earth’s surface, as shown in the character,preparation, and interrelation over the world of such ideas as climate, elevation, soil, population, land use, industries, or states, and of the unit areas formed by the complications of these individual elements. Overall, geography is very important, without our world would be very different.
Geography is the study of the earth in all its variety; it deals with the human geography, environmental geography and the physical geography.Geography is natural in everyone’s lives. It is all around us and it’s helping to instill discussion for the world, its environments and its peoples.
