Answer

A famous library that was held in Alexandria had an abundance of information about earth's description. The Greek scholar Eratosthenes had accepted the idea that the world was round and created accurate calculations of the circumference of the earth and drew multiple maps. As the Roman Era began and the Greek age began to make its way out. Roman scholars had gave us a number of scholars, but Ptolemy had written a book about geography. After the western Europe had lost most of its geographical information most knowledge was preserved by Arabic scholars that had described and analyzed physical environments, customs, and lifestyles. China had also described significant descriptions such as physical areas, natural resources and trips to other countries like Africa and India. During the middle ages a number of famous scholars had contributed to the field of geography like Bernhard Varen that had created 2 approaches in geography which are special and general geography. Special geography is now called regional geography. General geography is now labeled as topical or systematic geography. Varen's book was still relevant over a 100 years since it was created. It had been edited by Sir Isaac Newton and studied by student in Harvard.
