British Cartographic Society visit

Posted on: Sunday 06th October 2013

On Thursday a workshop took place for Year 10 Geography students to celebrate 50 years of the British Cartographic society.The workshop started with the students being given a variety of different maps and sources which they would need to complete the task. The task was to come up with suitable rescue and help plans for people in Japan who have been affected by an earthquake. With the limited information they had been given they began the set task, determined to show that they were capable of planning a wide scale earthquake relief plan. Included in their planning were factors such as having to find out where the safest place to form a help base was, where the main damage was, how people would be helped first and also where the most help was needed overall. The event was a great success, with logical and developed action plans being produced by all the groups.
