Cultural geography is not easily explained. It is extensive and

extremely wide-ranging. In order to organize it, geographers have

broken it down into five sections. These are: cultural landscape,

culture hearths, cultural diffusion, cultural perception, and cultural

environments. Cultural landscape is the imprint of cultures from the

past on their surroundings. Culture hearths consist of several sources

of culture growth and achievement developed in Eurasia, Africa, and

America. Cultural diffusion is cultural innovations and ideas that

spread to other cultures. For example, if one culture, culture A, wears

sneakers, and another, lesser culture, culture B, does not, culture B

may adapt culture A’s sneaker trait in which case Cultural diffusion

has occurred. Cultural perception is simply the way on views there

own natural surroundings. If a small village views the world as an

endless plain, and a large city views it as a small point in a vast

galaxy, than that is cultural perspective. Finally, cultural

environments. Cultural environments are the sections, which deal

with the role of culture in human understanding, use, and alteration of

the environment. All these combined create cultural geography.
