Limitations-Trip to Llanduno

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Llandudno Geography Enquiry A study of the Welsh Tourist Resort Limitations The method I had used to do my traffic count was pretty simple really. I and my partner had stood on the opposite sides of the roads and we had made an agreement that I am going to count cars driving into town while my partner is going to be counting cars leaving the town. To make sure our results were fair we had started counting and finished counting at the same time. We had repeated our test in the afternoon. However our method was limited by the fast driving cars, also we had been counting near the junction so it was much harder to count cars as they were all going in different direction. This had an effect on our results and could have made them less accurate as we might had accidently counted to many cars or missed some out. ...read more.

Middle

To ensure that we are getting better results we should have been doing it in some place where there was no bus stop or any junction. This would make our counting easier and would also make our results better, as we would be surer of our results. I had also done a Building function survey. This involved me walking along the streets and looking at different buildings. I had to record their height and function. I had recorded my results in a table. I had been doing this task with my group so I could consult before putting my results in. There were limitations on this task though. Many people had different views on whether the building should be classed as High, Middle or Low. Some of us looked at the prices in the shop, other classified it because of how often people buy stuff in it. ...read more.

Conclusion

But I don't think that there is any way of eliminating the limitations. I had carried out a questionnaire as my last task. This involved me walking around with my partner and asking people a range of questions. Than we were recording their answers in our booklets. The drawbacks on this work were that we were asking mainly people in town so many people were probably just the people working in the Llandudno rather than tourists. If we had asked half of the people in town and other on the beach we would get much fairer results. Also the weather was quite bad so people were not really happy to answer our questions. Plus some asked people were already asked by someone else so when we had sometimes swapped our results with other pair we could by accident have the same result. What would be better, is sending each pair to different part of town to ensure we get better and fairer results. ?? ?? ?? ?? Work by: Anika Kloska 10SG ...read more.
