How does geography affect settlement patterns?
The topography and physical features affect settlement patterns because communities must settle in areas which are 'inhabitable' and in close proximity to essential services. For example, it can be observed that the main primate cities of the world are located on large trade routes and are easily accessible usually also close to drinking water. The physical geography is vital in effective settlement patterns and is the very reason why cities are located where they are now.
