Geography is the study of the interrelationship between man and his environment. Hecataeus in his book of “GESPERIODOS” first name this subject of Geography. Geography is derived from two greek word Geo means earth and Graphia means the study. That why, Hecataeus is known as the father of Geography. In the ancient period this study was developed mainly by Greek and Roman Scholars like Aristrotol, Herodotus, Strabo etc. In the medieval period this was slightly developed after the contribution of Arabian Scholars.

But there was so much Dichotomies among the geographer in respect of contents of this subject, like Physical vs Human Geography, Systematic vs Regional Geography, Determinism vs Possibilism and so far.

After these dichotomies , two German scholar Humbolt and Carl Ritter contributed a new path in developing this subject. Both of them believed the study of Geography should be scientific and systematic instead of previous all contents in this subject.. And they remarked the study of Geography in 19 th century as classical Geography.

Following the path of previous scholars, modern Geography is much more scientific and problem solving in social aspect. That’s why, it may be called as social science. After the quantative  approach and  application of Remote Sensing and GIS this study now more scientific and welfare for developing man and his surrounding environment
