Region, Geography and Spatial Organization
Author(s):
Abstract:
Human society divides the surface of earth into different areas, territories, and several geographical, economic, social and cultural units in order to find its location. These homogenous and polarized zones are known as regions. A geographical approach to humans’ activities on earth can make their operations more systematized. Distinguished territorial frameworks facilitate the ordering of information that administrators, that is those who are responsible for land-use planning, need. The spaces where we organize our life should not be considered as simple localities. They are dwelling places that give identity to us. We feel at home in the country we evolve and begin to establish bonds between people we come to know so that, that very territory eventually dominates our relationship. Some places are endowed with particular signification. Their landscape and their monuments symbolize collective identities. They are marked by a culture that takes root over time and become later transmitted to coming generations. It is worth noting that traditionally, the physical characteristics such as geomorphology and climatology were very important to geographers in the definition of region. Nowadays however, the communication network constitutes the generative force of spatial organizations. In face of the dangers of global homogenization, men react and defend their long-held identities and seek to reestablish their attachment to familiar places and territories. In this light, they attempt to discover new ways to strengthen their affinity with living spaces.
