Human geography is one of the two main branches of geography. Based on the regional system of human-earth relations, this field focuses on the distribution and evolution of surface human phenomena, the formation and characteristics of their spatial structures, forecasts of their development and the patterns of changes. Sociality, regionality and comprehensiveness are the basic characteristics of this discipline. The identification and analysis of human geographic factors are the basis for conducting surveys of tourism resources and preparing tourism plans.
