Geography is a vital practice as it is the study of the Earth and all its features such as its lands, inhabitants, and phenomena. It provokes people to ask and answer questions about the world and helps people obtain knowledge of environments and places around the world and a thorough understanding of maps. Geographers are necessary to study the world and provide essential information to people around the world.

Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does a geographer do?

Geographers study physical and cultural phenomena that are scattered around the world. They examine features of the environment and their location on global, continental, regional, and local scales. Geographers are typically divided into types: economic, political, cultural, physical, urban and transportation, regional, and medical geographers. Economic geographers are concerned with the distributions of economic activities and resources. Political geographers study the relationship of political phenomena and geography. Cultural geographers are concerned with the geography of cultural phenomena. Physical geographers study differences in climate, soil, vegetation, and landforms and their implications on the activity of human beings. Urban and transportation geographers examine metropolitan areas and cities. Regional geographers examine the physical, cultural, political, and economic aspects of regions of all sizes from a small district to whole continents. Medical geographers study health care delivery systems, the effect of the environment on health, and epidemiology.

Many geographers use geographic information systems (GIS) technology to help them with their work. For example they might use GIS to develop computerized maps that can track certain information including patterns of traffic, population growth, natural resources, environmental hazards, and weather patterns. They then may use this information to inform governments on where and how to develop roads, houses, or landfills.

What kind of training does a geographer need?

Most geographers have a master or doctoral degree in geography or related field. They also need training in mathematics and statistics because quantitative and mathematical research methods are widely used in their work. Geographers must also be efficient in using computers for research and keep abreast on the latest technology. Many geographers participate in internships or other field experience.

What are the prospects for a career in geography?

Employment for geographers is expected to grow more slowly than average for all professions, increasing only 6% from 2006 to 2016 (1).

Geographers with higher education and extensive experience along with a GIS background will have the best job prospects. Many will find many job opportunities in areas where they apply GIS technology such as emergency assistance.

How much do geographers make?

As of June 2009, political scientists will less than 1 year experience made an average of $48,454 a year. Those with 1 to 4 years experience made an average of $47,500 and those with 5 to 9 years experience made an average of $78,100 (2).

A career as a political scientist is a great choice for individuals who have a genuine interest in politics. They must have an intellection curiosity and creativity to continuously obtain information about places, people, ideas, and things. Candidates must also have excellent oral and written communication skills and be able to think methodically and logically to examine complicated issues.
