Wikipedia article:  Geography

Geography

 

Geography (100)

 

·         The first person to use the word "geography" was Eratosthenes (276-194 BC).

 

·         Four historical traditions in geographical research are the spatial analysis of natural and human phenomena (geography as a study of distribution), area studies (places and regions), study of man-land relationship, and research in earth sciences.

 

·         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".

·         Geography has been called "the world discipline" and "the bridge between the human and the physical science".

 

·         As space and place affect a variety of topics such as economics, health, climate, plants and animals; geography is highly interdisciplinary.

 

·         Geography as a discipline can be split broadly into two main subsidiary fields: human geography and physical geography.

 

·         Although other subdisciplines of geography rely on maps for presenting their analyses, the actual making of maps is abstract enough to be regarded separately.

 

·         545 BC), considered by later Greek writers to be the true founder of geography, come to us through fragments quoted by his successors.

·         They must learn geodesy and fairly advanced mathematics to understand how the shape of the Earth affects the distortion of map symbols projected onto a flat surface for viewing.

 

·         One of the first estimates of the radius of the Earth was made by Eratosthenes.

 

·         To measure the longitude at different location on Earth, he suggested using eclipses to determine the relative difference in time.

 

science (55)

 

·         "earth describe-write") is the science that studies the lands, features, inhabitants, and phenomena of Earth.

 

·         Geography has been called "the world discipline" and "the bridge between the human and the physical science".

 

geographers (52)

 

·         Traditionally, geographers have been viewed the same way as cartographers and people who study place names and numbers.

·         Geography as a discipline can be split broadly into two main subsidiary fields: human geography and physical geography.

About Henry

Hi, I’m Henry Lewkowicz and I’m the CEO of Context Discovery Inc. For long time I have been interested in the importance of context in understanding information. Intuitively we recognize the meaning of context when we say “you took my words out of context”. This phrase vividly signifies how much we care about our intentions and point of view. I believe that in the Internet age context plays a big role in rapid understanding of information. I’ll go on the record and say that in fact seeing information in context dramatically speeds understanding and simplifies application of information. In this blog I hope to have a lively dialog with you on a range of subjects related to context, information overload, knowledge, learning and other fun topics. In the course of doing it I will be using our own application, Context Organizer, as an experiment in capturing in 1 sentence what bloggers and other writers publish. I hope that we all will have some fun with it and learn more about communicating. Although this is primarily a technology and business blog, to great degree it's also my personal blog. From time to time, amongst the customary posts, I will write about issues that I passionately care about, my travels, and photos that I've taken. Periodically I refer to my family or friends, and sometimes you even see my vacation photos. I hope to make lots of new friends and learn a great deal in the process. Life is too short…. Enjoy, and feel free to write to me.
