One was the mathematical traditional which was focused on fixing the location of places on the earth’s surface, and the other was gathering geographic information through travels and field work. Acoording to them, the purpose of geography was to provide a descriptian of the physical features and conditions in different parts of the world. The emergence of regional approach in geography also emphasied the descriptive character of geography.
