At the same time,geography has impacted on the way I plan to live, as I now understandthe places with optimum physical features I prefer for a futurefamily life. As a result of this understanding, I appreciate thatgeography and location has become more important in the society. Thisis seen in the significant use of the geographicalinformation system (GIS)inlocating places.
