ITALY Are you planning or intending to go to Italy either to live there or to go on holiday there? If you are then hopefully you can find out all the information you would like, about the North and South of Italy. You should be able to compare the two areas by reading the information on the North and then on the South. This booklet mainly concentrates on Naples and Milan. NORTH-Milan Location. Milan is found in the Northern part of Italy. Venice is just east of Milan and Florence is south east of the city. Switzerland is north of it and Lyon, in France, is west of Milan. Above is a map of Italy highlighting the northern position of Milan. Climate * The climate in The North is in between a British climate (temperate) and a Mediterranean climate. * In the winter it is cold and the temperatures in January is between 0oC-2oC. There is frost in winter quite often and fog too but fog can happen at any time in any year (100days of fog on average in Milan in 1 year). * When it is summer it is very warm with the temperatures in July about 24oC. * The rainfall isn't usually heavy and 800mm of rain falls evenly throughout a year.

The Alyn Valley is situated in the north-east of Wales four miles west of Mold
Is the Alyn Valley A Popular Place For People To Visit In Their Leisure Time? Description of Results By looking at by located % bar charts which show car park occupancy in the Alyn Valley diagram I can tell which car park was busiest at the time. By using this method I found that the picnic site had the busiest car park with 68% of its spaces occupied leaving 32% unoccupied. The quietest car park was Bwlch Pen Bara where only 18% of spaces were occupied leaving 82% unoccupied. This means that loggerhead's was in-between the two with28% of its spaces occupied and 72%unoccupied. By taking these results I can tell how busy the Alyn Valley was on this day but bearing in mind that it was mid morning of a weekday during a school term when there is likely to be less people visiting the area than there would be of a weekend or during the summer holidays and maybe even a just later on that day in the afternoon. On the day I made note of where the cars had come from this helped me to later draw a "desire line graph to show catchment area of the Alyn Valley" this makes it easier for me to see how far people are willing to travel to visit the Alyn Valley. I found that people were willing to travel from up to 50 kilometres away to visit the Alyn Valley although a majority of visitors where from less than 10 kilometres away from a place called Mold. The smallest number of cars came from
To study the influence of Tourists on Settle's Land-use.
Data Collection for Aim 1 Aim 1 To study the influence of Tourists on Settle's Land-use. Hypothesis 1 The shops and services in Settle's market area are mainly for tourists. During my visit to Settle I completed a land use survey of Settle's market square and the surrounding buildings. The use of each building was recorded on a base map given. The map was of the buildings in Settle's market square, each building was numbered from 1-55. Overleaf was a table in which I recorded what each building was used for next to the correct number. I recorded what each building was used for at eye level i.e. the ground floor. These buildings were then classified in different categories e.g. tourist, mixed and residential. The buildings were categorised as it would help me when finding if most of the shops and service's in Settle are mainly for tourists. A sketch of Settle's market was also produced on the same map, showing what the stalls sold and where they were situated. I was able to do this as I went to Settle on a market day. Hypothesis 2 The majority of visitors have never visited Settle before. The data which was collected for this aim is a mixture of primary and secondary. The primary data which was collected were questionnaires. These questionnaires were asked to 10 random people as I didn't discriminate against age, gender or race during my visit to Settle.
How we need to manage tourism by he year 2050
How we need to manage tourism by he year 2050 As the minister of tourism I feel it is my duty to improve tourism in Kenya, and stop it getting out of hand. Kenya is a beautiful and popular place. More and more people by the year are wanting to visit. It has many attractions and people from all around the world are wanting to visit the national parks, safari parks, the coral reefs, different cultures, accommodation, beautiful scenery and hot weather. Tourism is important to the country because like all developing countries Kenya needs all the money it can get. And without having to rely on developed countries for charity, tourism is one way in which it can hope to achieve a better standard of living for its people. Tourism is also important because poor people are making money from tourists and the multiplier effect takes place e.g. because they get more money and trades do better and develop. The money the poor people gets goes towards schools, hospitals, roads and any other thing that will help build the country. That is why tourism is vital to the economy. The people in Kenya cant afford expensive equipment and most have no skills. But they have resources e.g. the hot weather, safaris, parks, coral reefs. However this made be good but in order to keep tourism under control but at the same time using sustainable tourism e.g. we want to change some aspects but without
How a charity helps in development. Water Aid's work in Ghana
Water Aid Ghana Aims: - help 80,000 people gain access to water, sanitation and hygiene every year by 2011 - support local organisations to raise their own funds, while keeping a strong advisory role on how these funds are spent to ensure a further 40,000 people gain access to water, sanitation and hygiene every year by 2011 - To ensure problems of the poorest, socially excluded and marginalised groups, like women, elderly, disabled and those living with HIV/AIDS, receive increased support. How does Water Aid provide support? Water Aid works in partnership with 8 non governmental organisations (NGOs). These partners carry out the day to day management of water, sanitation and hygiene education projects in 6 out of 10 of the countries regions. Water Aid provides financial support, training and technical advice as well as assistance with planning, budgeting and institutional development. Water Aid also works in influencing governments, to ensure that they meet the millennium development goals (MDGs) and the Ghanaian poverty reduction strategy paper. The MDG targets are to halve the proportions of people without access to water and sanitation between 1990 and 2015. Water Aids partners invest in easy to use, easy maintenance technology that can be sustained by the local users of the facility. What has Water Aid achieved?

The Metrocentre (ai) The metrocentre is located on the outskirts of Newcastle, in my opinion it is situated in a very clever place. It is just outside the main built up areas of the city so most citizens are within a half an hour drive of it. Also, the people of other nearby areas like Sunderland and South Shields are quite near to the metrocentre and would be prepared to travel there as it has a large range of goods and therefore a larger sphere of influence. Another good feature of the site is that it is near to public transport links. There are two train lines running almost straight past the site one coming from Carlisle the other from Newcastle city centre. In summary the metrocentre is located on an excellent site as it as accessible from a long way away both by road and public transport, these links would definitely increase the chances of more customers going to the centre. (aii) The layout of the centre is very clever as it attracts people to all of the stores. Firstly the centre has many entrances situated all around the place, this means that people filter in all over the store instead of having to rush in through one or two entrances. Also, knowing that supermarkets attract the most people the designers cleverly put one supermarket at each and of the building. This means that as people walk towards one end of the centre they will pass by lots of other
Geography GCSE coursework, land use analyses. Finding the CBD in Perth.
A study to try to relate Perth's CBD to a typical textbook CBD Aims . To study the CBD of Perth to see if it conforms to the characteristics of a typical CBD described in a textbook 2. To delimit the CBD 3. To collect some additional data on one aspect of the CBD and produce a personal extension of the coursework Introduction I would expect to find a textbook CBD in the middle of a city where it is most accessible for the population. The CBD is usually the oldest part of the city and has tall buildings to accommodate the needs for retail services in such a busy centre. On the ground floor of a CBD I would expect there to be mainly retail shops with a few offices dotted along the streets just off the High Street. I would expect to find very little residential buildings and any that were to be terraced as there would not be enough room, on the highly sought after land, on the high street for a garden. This high demand for land would also mean that it would be too expensive to run any sort of industry and so they must find cheaper land outside the CBD. As the land in the CBD is valued so highly the buildings should tend to be much taller to increase their floor space which is so valuable. On these extra floors the land should be used for shops and offices with the rare flat amongst them. I would expect more offices than shops as customers don't really want to climb a
Hypothesis 'the closer we get to the CBD the more pedestrians we will count'
Final Conclusion Firstly the hypothesis 'the closer we get to the CBD the more pedestrians we will count' is proven. This is because as we moved closer to Barrow town centre we found higher numbers of pedestrians. These results were shown on an isopleth map. The darkest colour is shown in the middle of the CBD and indicates where the highest numbers of pedestrians were found. Areas such as Portland Walk and Dalton Road had high numbers of pedestrians. This is because these are areas of high quality shopping with magnet stores such as Debenhams and comparison shops such as Next. As we moved further away from the CBD the number of pedestrians was less. Areas such as the Custom House had very few pedestrians. This is because these areas are found on the outskirts where there are fewer shops. This is what we would expect for a typical MEDC city CBD. The hypothesis 'the closer we get to the pedestrianised area of a CBD the more vehicles there will be' is not proven. This is because as we moved closer to the pedestrianised areas we found fewer vehicles. At the main pedestrianised area, Portland Walk we found there were no vehicles present. This was due to the fact that no vehicles could pass through that area as it was strictly for pedestrians. This is similar to other pedestrianised areas in the CBD e.g. parts of Dalton Road also had no vehicles present and were strictly for
Introduction to shopping hierarchy in North West London
Introduction I am going to try to find out if there is a shopping hierarchy in North West London. My coursework is going to be carried out in 4 different shopping areas that I chose in North West London. So is there a shopping hierarchy in North West London? With my predictions I hope to show that different shops in North West London have different locations. Some has better transport connections. I also hope to shows that different high order, middle order and lo order shops focus on different products and their prices and how does the size of shopping area affect the products and their services. Below is my 5 hypothesis. A hypothesis in other words prediction is about what I expect to find put while doing my investigation. Hypothesis 1 There are more high order shops in Brent-Cross than in Edgware Broadwalk shopping centre. Hypothesis 2 High order shops such as Brent-Cross and Edgware shopping centres area tidier than Pennine Drive and Golders Green. Hypothesis 3 Most people visit the shopping area from a short distance. (Near where they live) Hypothesis 4 People will spend more time in Brent-Cross shopping centre than in Golders Green. What is a shopping hierarchy? Shops can be placed into a hierarchy based on the services they provide. At the bottom of the hierarchy are small shops selling low order, convenience goods (e.g. bread and milk). At the top
Causes and Effects of Migration
Causes and Effects of Internal and External Migration Migration is the movement of people from one place to another. We can divide it into two different parts. Internal migration which is rural(towns) to urban(cities). For example, Oakham to Manchester and external migration also can be said as international migration which is the movement from one country to another. For example, Turks to Germany or Mexicans to USA which I am going to talk about it as we go on. People migrate for two reasons. Firstly, they may wish to get away from the things that they do not like. These are called push factors and include:- * not enough and poorly paid jobs * old and poor quality houses * natural disasters - earthquakes, volcanoes, wars * few oppotunities - shopping centers, cinema, food, schools, hospitals * poor transport Secondly, people are attracted to the things that they do like. These are called pull factors and include:- * more and better paid jobs * new and good quality houses * better education - more oppotunities * improved medical care * better transport Now I am going to talk about the rural-urban migration in Britain. During the Industrial Revolution of the nineteenth century, many people in Britain were either forced to leave the countryside caused by push factors or attracted to the growing towns caused by the pull factors. Between about 1930 and 1980 there
