why do geographers study settlement patterns??
I answered two of your questions. Now it's your turn.
What do you think?
i think they study settlement patterns because they want to improve settlement for the future?? im not really sure why.
Yes, you're on the right track. :-)
Geographers learn from settlement patterns the effects of human relationships with their environment. What resources are used? How can a culture preserve these resources? Why did people settle one place and not another? Why were some settlements abandoned? How can we prevent other abandoned settlements?
In studying settlement will help geographers to know what are various social, economíc,and even political activities are taking place in a certain geographical phenomenon. I do know if am correct plz help
