Geoterm - Glossary of Geography and related terms

Developed by the Department of Geography University of South Africa

What is the Geography Glossary?
This is a platform intended to assist consumers of geographical terminology in English, isiZulu, Sesotho sa Leboa, and Afrikaans. The terms and their definitions are organized in a list called a glossary. Each entry in the glossary is called a concept, which can consist of multiple terms.


Click here to open the glossary.

It is also possible to search for specific terms (see top of the page). Using the advanced search, the search can be filtered by language or to include the text in definitions only.

The Geography Glossary runs on the Terminator software, which is free to distribute. Need an introduction, help, or just curious to learn more? Read here for more information.
