This program is classified into three categories: The physical geography primarily covers natural processes that create the background environment in which human activities occur. Physical geography includes climatology, land surface processes (literally the shape of the land, how hills and valleys and other topographic features form and change), biogeography (how naturally occurring plant and animal populations are influenced by these other parts of geography), and other combinations of subareas. Human geography encompasses understanding of how all aspects of human activity fit into and respond to their environments. Human geography may include the social, cultural, economic, political, and historical aspects of human activity. Geographic methods include all aspects of map making, map analysis, and data analysis techniques that are specialized for use with geographic data. Over the past two decades, a computerized mixture of mapping, spatial data analysis, and spatial database handling known as Geographic Information Systems has grown from a research area to a multibillion dollar industry with a thriving job market.
