Abstract : A discussion is presented on the following field techniques involved in geographic study: the direct observation of phenomena in the field, interview of informants, and the study of documentary materials. Direct observations are recorded by mapping, note-taking, and photography. Transverse, base map, and airphoto means of mapping are employed, and observations are recorded on the maps by the single-phenomenon and unit-area methods.
