Geography/Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.– T. S. Eliot
Explore our world.
At the dawn of our efforts to understand our human experience, we divided our study into two parts: those things of our world (Geos), and those things not of our world (Cosmos).
Geography is the study of our world, which includes the human experience and our physical environment.
