People's perceptions of places, refers to how we are informed by the geographical imagination. Two branches of geography – humanistic geography and behavioural geography – best help to deepen these perceptions. Humanistic geography focuses on people's relationships with place, with their feelings and attitudes towards space and place. Behavioural geography makes a distinction between an objective observation of places (things as they exist) and perceived places (things that are seen by individuals).
Human Geography: people, places and change
Human Geography combines economic and cultural geography to explore the relationships between humans and their natural environment, and to track the broad social patterns that shape human societies.
