The Five Themes of Geography

  • When geographers work, they are guided by two basic questions:

    • Where are things located?

    • Why are they there?

      To find these answers, geographers use five themes to organize information


The five themes of geography1
The Five Themes Of Geography

  • 1. Location

    • Absolute Location

      • Latitude

        • Parallel to the Equator

      • Longitude

        • Parallel to the Prime Meridian

    • Relative Location

  • 2. Place

    • Characteristics

  • 3. Human-Environment Interactions

    • Relationships within places
