Geography analyzes spatial patterns and regional associations of the physical and cultural environments. It is concerned with human relationships with these environments as they exist now, existed in the past, and may or should exist in the future. This approach means geographers find work in many diverse fields, from environmental management to urban planning, from community development to the park service to GIS project management.
