Geography is a field study of the lands, the features, the inhabitants, and the phenomena of earth. Nonetheless, modern geography is an all-encompassing discipline that foremost seeks to understand the earth and all of its human and natural complexities— not merely where objects are, but how they have changed and come to be. Geography has been called the world discipline and the bridge between the human and the physical science. Different methodological positions exist within geographical work, mainly related to the two main branches of the field, physical and human. This book offers a conceptual and practical introduction to research methodology, data collection, and techniques used in both human and physical geography.
