Geography begins with a lack of uniformity on the earth's surface. People, their activities, and physical features are distributed unevenly across space, so one of our most important tasks is to explain why things are where they are. But that's not all. Geographers study the earth's physical processes, movement and change of both people and natural systems, and the interaction of people with their environment. Virtually anything can be examined from a geographical perspective because everything, including environmental problems, economic activity, and natural environments, happens in particular places for reasons that we may or may not yet understand.
