Time geography is a phrase used to describe a new field of study that graphs out time and space spent doing certain activities over time. It was founded in 1970, and was recently revisited to include mapping techniques for internet communication technologies where geography is not necessarily bound to visibly adjacent territory.

Swedish Geographer Hägerstrand, Torsten is known as the developer of Time Geography.
