TYPES OF REGIONS IN GEOGRAPHY

TYPES OF REGIONS IN GEOGRAPHY

in geography, a region is an area that shares some sort of common characteristics that binds the area into the whole

types of regions in human geography




there are two types of regions in geography namely formal regions and functional regions

formal regions are characterized by homogeneity or uniformity in some or a number of different characteristics.

these characteristics can be both human and physical related, so the region can be defined by climate or vegetation type, in sense of physical geography or they could be defined by language or ethnicity in sense of human geography




example of formal regions may be states of the united states or regions in Tanzania

a functional region or nodal region on the other hand, is an area that contains a central node or focal point to which other places in the region are connected by some activity

functional regional may be seen in cities where the central area of the city might serve as the focal point for the rest of metropolitan area.
