ABSTRACT: In this letter I try to outline a definition of Technical Geography as an emerging new branch of Geography. The first part presents personal views based on two fundamental concepts: spatial and temporal AUTOCORRELATION and FREQUENCY. In the second part I present viewpoints from literature, as Technical Geography, which relies on spatial techniques, statistical techniques and modern technologies, is seen as a branch serving the geo-informational management and the decision-making system. I anticipate that in the not-too-distant future, the thorough research and constant increase in the number of Technical Geography applications will make all fields of Geography become technical and will remain so in the future.

Keywords: Autocorrelation, Frequency, Spatial techniques, Statistical techniques, Modern technologies
