Peter Haggett dedicated his career to urban and regional geography as well as geographical epidemiology.

Urban and regional geography can be defined as human geography within cities including the development and research of sites, evolution, growth, and location including the importance to various cities. The main role to social development is its emphasis on location and spatial patterns.

Geographical Epidemiology is the effect of climate, terrain, population of humans and animals, and industrial enterprises on animal disease.
