Map Interpretation

Supplementary Item A
, Ordnance Survey Map, Extract No 1883/OL27 1:25 000 (Explorer Series) North
York Moors, is the basis for answers to questions in this Section.
For whichever question you choose in this Section (ie 1. or 2.) you are expected to make
extensive and detailed use
of your atlas and the map extract.
You are strongly advised to read the whole of both question 1 and question 2 before you make
your choice.
1.
The North Yorkshire Moors area is a popular destination for schools to visit for geographical
fieldwork, due to its varied landscape and fieldwork opportunities.
To exploit this popularity a new route, making use of existing paths and roads, is to be established
which would introduce students to aspects of the physical and human environment.
The route should be between 12 and 15 km long and should start at the car park at
844088
, and finish
at an appropriate location. The grid reference for a suitable final pickup point must be identified. It
is expected that the route and activities would involve a full day’s fieldwork.
(
a
) On the tracing paper,
Supplementary Item B
for question 1, you should carefully trace your
chosen route.
(
b
) Add labels to the tracing of the route to highlight at least
four
locations where students could
stop and come into contact with different fieldwork experiences.
(
c
) In your answer book, you should describe and explain,
using direct map evidence
, why the
whole
route has the potential to show the different physical and human environments of the
area. You should also give clear and detailed examples of what each of your locations has to
offer as a point of interest for field study and
briefly
discuss the potential fieldwork activities.

(
c
) Using your information on the general distribution from your sketch map in part (

explain
its location,
growth and possible functions in terms of the constraints/limitations and opportunities offered
by the Physical Geography.
