WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF GEOGRAPHY

www.nirmancare.com is an education initiative to enrich the educational platform for students. We are committed to provide quality educational materials for students (specially in the field of Geography).

What does the word Geography mean?

The word Geography was invented by an ancient Greek Scholar "Eratosthenes" (Father of Geography). In simple words Geography means "writing about the Eearth." The word Geography can be divided into two parts – "Geo and Graphy. Geo means the earth and Graphy refers to writing.

Geography today means much more than writing about the earth but it's difficult to define Geography in words. Many geographers have put in their best to define Geography using a few words but a typical dictionary definition today reads, "The science of the earth's physical features, resources, climate, population, etc."
