Comparison between Candie and Cambridge park (beginning)

Extracts from this document...


For my subject, I've chosen to make a general comparison between the 'Candie Gardens' and 'Cambridge Park'. This will include, * The facilities that people use * The type of people that make use of these facilities (age etc) * The amounts of people that make use of these facilities * The transport links to and surrounding the areas * The traffic to and surrounding the areas * The amounts of parking spaces in or around the areas * What other communities may use the areas' e.g. schools According to these comparison subjects, I have written a series of hypotheses, * The activities of both areas will be different * The landscape/plants will be different * People using Candie Gardens will be older * Candie Gardens will have more tourists * Cambridge Park will be more popular * Both areas will be used by schools * There will be more public transport around Cambridge park * There will be more traffic around Cambridge park * There will be more parking at Cambridge park * There will be ...read more.


Yes No (ii) If you are or were local to Guernsey as a school pupil, did you come here with your school? Yes No 3. How did you travel here?

Leisure centre OR Museum Playing fields/Playground Priaulx Library Skateboard ramps Gardens Other Other Traffic & Transport * More traffic around Cambridge At a set time and date, a friend and I will tally the cars at X minute intervals on a sheet. We will be standing at two different points, one on the main road that goes by Cambridge and the other at the main road alongside Candie. This will be done twice in the day, once at a normal time (11 am) and once again at a rush hour (5pm or 3pm). ...read more.


* More schools will use Cambridge Possibly contact the environment department to enquire about Cambridge but will probably be able to ask staff at Candie. * The landscape/plants will be different I have a Guernsey guide to local plants etc but photos may be more useful. Data representation I'll be using a series of charts and graphs to show my data. A pie chart would probably be appropriate for representing travel, whilst bar charts would be adequate to represent traffic, population and used services. A graph may be appropriate to show age of those who visit each site, an average of which will also be made. Examples I was also going to make a land use diagram but I'm not sure I'll be able to do one unless it's estimated, but I think that it will be a good idea. An alternative to this is to just use pictures, land use can still be compared this way and rough estimations can be noted, it may also be a lot simpler to do. ...read more.
