key concepts of geography
Place in geography is where the thing or place is located on the Earth.
In geography space is used to understand the surroundings of the place e.g. the environment or landscape.
the environment is what type of things are living in that area e.g. animals and plants.
Geographers use the concept interconnection to better understand the complex link between natural and human processes.
Sustainability is how well conserved something is and how well it can stay there for and be sustained
Change is when the landscape or the land form is changed by either the environment or by humans
Scale is the size of the actual object compared to how big it is on the map or image e.g. 1 cm = 20 km
