Abstract:The organisation of human social and economic life is constrained by time as well as space. The spatial component does not only pose limitations in the form of distances, but can also offer possibilities for development as a result of favourable location characteristics. Some of the characteristics of a location are dictated by natural circumstances such as climate, altitude, and the presence of water and natural resources. Others result from human activity: agriculture, cities, roads, and ports. There often exists a clear dependency between the two parts, though sometimes human activity seems to overrule nature. With sufficient cultivation, agriculture can be situated in areas that do not have a favourable soil; some major cities are vulnerable to earthquakes or lie below sea level.
