There are two objectives of this task:
- You can demonstrate that you know how to recognise different urban zones on an OS map.
- You can describe what the different urban zones are like.
Your task is to try and identify the CBD, inner city, suburbs and rural-urban fringe using examples from a UK city. Present your work as labelled maps and photographs.
Example from Birmingham:
Where’s The Path? Compare Ordnance Survey maps and Google Earth
Open Space map builder use if Where’s The Path isn’t working
Google Maps – activate the photos layer
Flickr – photos (need to search for creative commons pictures)
