Geography is a field of science that deals with the study of the lands, features, inhabitants, and phenomena of the Earth and planets.

Simply put, is the study of places and the relationships between people and their environments.

Eratosthenes, the ancient Greek scholar is called the “father of geography”. He was the first one to use the word geography and he also had a small-scale notion of the planet that helped him to determine the circumference of the earth.
