    Abstract

    Let X be a space of dimension at most 1. Then, the fundamental group is isomorphic to a subgroup of the first Čech homotopy group based on finite open covers. Consequently, for a one-dimensional continuum X, the fundamental group is isomorphic to a subgroup of the first Čech homotopy group.
