In doing so… they establishedindependent city-states each of which jealously defended itsterritory. With limited land, rising population put pressure on each city'slimited land so they had the choice of taking another city's land,or shipping off the surplus to colonise new city-states by seizingland from other peoples. In this wat the Greeks spread all aroundthe Mediterranean and Black Seas, eventually establishing about2,000 independent city-states.

Geography impacts the development of civilizations in several important ways. A group of peoples that find themselves in a land locked situation will not be able to take advan…tage of waterways, river and seas. With no ports, their ability to fish and use commerce by sea impacts their ability to interact with nations that have water as an asset. Nations that find themselves in rugged and mountainous regions will not be able to farm effectively. Deserts and frigid areas may cause people to migrate to more hospitable locations. Unfavorable geography will stifle those peoples that chose to remain in their circumstances.
Geography influenced the development of Tenochtitlan because at first, the land was full of water, but then the Aztecs reclaimed land from the lakes by sinking timbers into th…e water to serve as walls and filled the area between the timbers with mud, reeds, and boulders. In this way they created small islands called chinampas, or "floating gardens". Eventually, Aztecs expanded the city's land surface until it covered over five square miles. They even merged Tlatelolco,originally a separate island, with Tenochtitlan.
the mountains,rivers and any other physical feature might divide towns which would divide local governments
