Geography and GIS Research Areas and Disciplines

One area of research is the use of geographic information systems and remote sensing to analyze real-world problems, such as population migration and health questions. Tools such as satellites are being used to track population migration and commuting behavior, blood donor profiling, and infectious disease modeling. Spatial analysis is being used to study transportation patterns and land use at the regional and urban level.

Other researchers are investigating regional and urban geography, where they are studying the urban quality of life, gender and health, informal caregiving, and therapeutic landscapes. These people often work with health care provider agencies and associated supportive organizations. The history of urban housing and suburban development is also being studied, which involves studying social patterns of settlement, processes of land development, and trends in housing finance.

In physical geography, research interests focus on climatology, geomorphology, hydrology, and associated studies of natural hazards and disasters. See the articles on geology, hydrology, oceanography, and atmospheric sciences for more information.
