Economic Geography of India PDF. Resources may be defined as materials which occur in the environment and which people find useful in satisfying their needs. Land and soil, forest, river, mineral solar energy, sea etc. are the natural resources. Man- made resources are machinery, transport system, artificial fertilizers and less tangible resources include scenery, a healthy climate and the skills and expertise of persons. All things which occur in the environment are called potential resources. For example, coal and oil acquire resource value only when their use comes to be known.
