The Geographer
The Geographer by Johannes Vermeer

A geographer is a scientist whose area of study is geography.

That is the study of Earth's physical environment and human habitat.

Geographers are historically known as people who make maps. Nowadays map making is the field of study of cartography, a subset of geography. The geographer studies not only the physical details of the environment. He looks at the influence of this physical environment as well. Therefore he looks at human and wildlife ecologies, weather and climate patterns, economics, and culture. He will concentrate on the influence space has for relationships between these elements.

The National Geographic Society sees five broad key themes for geographers:

  • location
  • place
  • human-environment interaction
  • movement
  • regions
