Geography & Earth Science

Background Information

The Illustrated Dictionary of Science, Andromeda defines geography as, 

The group of sciences concerned with the surface of the Earth, including the distribution of life upon it, its physical structures, etc. Geography relies on surveying and mapping, and modern cartography (mapmaking) has rapidly adapted to the new needs of geography as it advances and develops.
