History.
Early pre-classical geographers concentrated on map-making, surveying, and exploring. In classical Greece theoretical ideas first became a characteristic of geography. Aristotle and Pythagoras believed the Earth to be a sphere, Eratosthenes was the first to calculate the circumference of the world, and Herodotus investigated the origin of the Nile floods and the relationship between climate and human behavior.
During the medieval period the study of geography progressed little in Europe, but the Muslim world retained much of the Greek tradition, embellishing the 2nd-century maps of Ptolemy. During the early Renaissance the role of the geographer as an explorer and surveyor became important once again.
The foundation of modern geography as an academic subject stems from the writings of Humboldt and Ritter, in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, who for the first time defined geography as a major branch of scientific inquiry.
