Discussions of all branches and scales of geography are highly encouraged! If you have a question, no matter how basic or complex, ask away.
Links to original sources are preferred.
Please do not re-host images or maps at imgur or similar sites. Re-hosting prevents the author(s) from getting the recognition they deserve. It also prevents us, the reader, from seeing the context and background information the image was published in.
Original work is welcome. If you've made a map, or written an article or blog post etc, please share.
If you have an undergraduate level or higher degree of education in geography or a related field, message a moderator to get a custom flair that specifies your specific area of expertise. Otherwise, feel free to add one of our existing flair options for your interest in a specific subfield of geography.
