Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Is there s shop and service hierarchy in north London? The aim of this coursework is for me to determine which areas are best for shopping, which ones are the safest, and how far people travel to get to the area in which they shop, I will also be looking at other aspects of the shops, I will be checking how safe people think it is, if it's a bad area, a dangerous area, another aspect I will be looking at will be its environmental features, if it is environmentally safe, all the data I collect will be analysed, and I will then find out which area is actually the best, I will also fid out if all my predictions were right, or if some were wrong. This is some of the geographical terms I will be using in this piece of coursework. Hierarchy- This is when shopping centres are put it in order, depending on how good its centre is, and how good the services are. Convenience- These are goods you would buy every day, in small corner shops, e.g. bread, milk, the daily newspaper. Comparison goods- These are goods like computers, TV's and anything electronic, these are expensive goods. High Order Shops- These are shops in which they sell expensive goods, e.g. curry's and pc world. Medium Order Shop- These are shops that sell a range of goods, from TV's to milk and bread. Good examples are Tesco's and Asda. Low Order Shops- These are shops that we go to buy convenience goods, e.g. bread milk and a daily newspaper. Services- Services are shops/buildings that help you get around there centre's, sometimes they have maps; sometimes they would have a kiosk, or an information point in which you can get directions. Sphere Of Influence- This is how far people are prepared to travel to get to the shop, the further the distance the more important the area. ...read more.

4 people took 15-30 minutes to get here, 5 people took 30-45 minutes to get here, and 0 took more then 45 minutes. So they must have been spent a long time in shops or just standing outside for a bus to come by. As you can see from this graph 9 people caught a bus to get here, 8 people walked it here, 6 people drove here, and no one used any other type of transport. So this means people would not waste money to get here, or catch a bus, they would rather walk then waste money to get to such a small shopping area. As you can see from this graph 14 people shop here daily, 4 people shop here twice a week, to people shop here weekly, and 3 people have different times. So as you can see people shop here daily for the convenience goods. As you can see from this graph 15 people spent less than 15 minutes here, 3 people spent 15-30 minutes here, 5 people spent 30-60 minutes here, and 0 spent other times. This means that people spend quiet a lot of time here, which means it must be a good place to shop. As you can see 11 people spent under 5 pound here, 7 people spent 5-10 pound, 4 people spent 10-50 pound and 1 person actually spent more than 50 pound (this could be due to the fact that they must have been buying from the more comparison shops, e.g. the bathroom and kitchen shop that was there.) As you can see from this graph 12 people came because of the convinence goods here, 1 person came because of the "good reputation", 1 person came because it was clean, howevber from what i saw it was not so clean), 5 people came because of the range of shops, and 4 people came because of other features. ...read more.

Conclusion

As you can see from this graph this area is pretty messed up. Everything is opn the high end of the scale which means its disgusting, dirty, smelly, music everywhere. Although alot of people com here, i think its one of the worst places to shop. As you can see from this graph 2 people are male and 2 people are female. As you can see from this graph 2 people are under 18 and 2 people are between 18-20. As you can see 3 people are from Neasden and 1 person from wembley. As you can seeall 4 peple spend under 15 minutes to get here. As you can see frmo this graph 1 person caught a bus to get here, and 3 people walked. As you can see 1 person shops here daily, 1 person shops twice a week, and 2 people shop here weekly. As you can see from this graph 1 person spends under 15 minutes here and 3 people spend 15-30 minutes. As you can see from this graph spends under �5, 3 people spend �5-�10. As you can see from this graph 1 person shops here because it is convinient and 3 people shop here because of the range of shops. As you can see from this graph 3 people say that the shops are suitable and 1 person said no. As you can see from this graph 12 busses went by in 15 minuets. As you can see from this graph 46 people went by in 15 minutes. This means it is a very popular place to shop. As you can see 21 cars went by in 15 minutes. This means a lot of people drive here. As you can see no taxis went by. So people would not pay for a taxi to drive them here. As you can see from this graph there are a few ups and downs. Its all balanced out, it is niether good nor bad. The litter is ok. Seating is ok. Smell is good. Bins are good. And so on. But chewing gum and access to shops are bad. ...read more.
