The purpose of this paper is to study the knowledge and academic progress of geography in the early of 21st century in the field of physical geography and Geo-Informatics. Observation the related research studies and articles in Thailand and abroad. Using method of studying content and classification, Meta-analysis, effect-size, and academic relational network.

The results of the meta-analysis study and effect size in physical geography. Found that the field of Environmental geography, Meteorology, Coastal geography, Hydrology and Quaternary Sciences. It has a prominent role in Europe and America. The Geo-Informatics found that the field of Spatial analysis, Global position system, Remote sensing, and Web mapping. It plays a prominent role in Europe and America as well. The academic relational network found the axis of Environmental geography, Hydro-geography, and Coastal geography was in the field of Physical geography. The axis of Global position systems and remote sensing are in the Geo-Informatics.  The research in Thailand was focuses on applied studies of Geo-Informatics on environmental change, land use and natural disasters. The  overseas was in-depth research and progress in each field such as Environmental change studies, Behavior and Quantity, Physical and Geopolitics, Ecology and Evolution, Biology and Social interaction in Physical geography. The study and research in Spatiotemporal, Positioning system and Mapping, Biogeography and Morphology, Information system, Early warning predicting and Behavior modeling, Digital geography in the Geo-Informatics. 

In summary, both fields are important in the geography world and related sciences in terms of fundamental sciences, spatial application, and prediction.
