A person’s perspective is their point of view; the position from which they see and understand the world and events going on around them. People in the past may have had different points of view about a particular event, depending on their age, gender, social position and their beliefs and values. Historians also have perspectives and this can influence their interpretation of the past. In Geography, perspective also refers to the view presented in a photograph or map, for example an aerial view in a photograph and an oblique view in a sketch map can be used to represent different perspectives of the same landscape.
