Examples of geographical features include rivers, mountain ranges and cities. Geographic features are defined as natural and artificial identifying components of the Earth.

Natural geographic features are subdivided into biomes and landforms. Deserts, oceans and arctic areas are examples of biomes, which include all the living and nonliving features that make up that community. A biome includes plant types, animal types and climate.

Landforms are bodies of water, hills, mountains and other naturally occurring constructs that define an area.

Artificial geographic features include settlements and engineered constructs. Engineered constructs are buildings, bridges, roads and other man-made structures that define an area. Settlements encompass temporary or permanent areas in which groups of people live and work.
