Absolute location is the exact location of something. The next one is relative location. This is described by landmarks, time,direction or distance.an example of relative location is my house is north of California.

2: f | The next theme is place. There are physical places and human places. Physical places describes land and water features. Human places describe cultural groups living in a place, their way of living, and economic activities.

3: The third one is human-environment interaction. This is how we effect the earth and how the environment effects us. For example there are floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes. Those right there effect the way we live. They can destroy our homes and properties.
