  • Sherringham  Fieldwork
    • Physical
      • Suitable location
        • Good access
        • Able to do in one day
        • Clear processes
      • Data presentation
        • Method 2: located proportional arrow
          • Weaknesses
            • Scale needed to be representative
          • Strengths
            • Multiple sets of data in one image
            • Clear visual representation
        • Method 1: bar graph
          • Weaknesses
            • Requires explanation
            • Can be manipulated to show false interpretations
          • Strengths
            • Can be interpreted for specific data
            • Clear visual representation
            • Easy to produce and see patterns or anomalies
      • Risks
        • Falling in water
          • Take due care and attention
        • Weather
          • Take appropriate measures i.e. sun cream
        • Slipping on rocks
          • Wear appropriate footwear
      • Analysis
        • Long shore drift
          • Mean apples distance 12.41m
          • Anomalies detected (probably human error) groynes 1&2 opposite direction
        • Sediment height
          • Large range of 45cm
          • Most sediment in groynes 4-6 so more effective further up the beach
      • Conclusion
      • Evaluation
        • Reliability
          • Use a larger sample size
        • Accuracy
          • Use a more accurate measurementtool
        • Validity
          • Reduce errors by making these improvements
          • Easy to produce and see patterns or anomalies
    • Human
      • Data Presentation
        • Method 2: pie charts for % land use
          • Strengths
            • easy to construct
            • anomalies stand out
          • Weaknesses
            • doesnt show exact values
        • Method 1: statistics - proportional circles
          • Weaknesses
            • hard to spot anomalies
            • only a snapshot in time
          • Strengths
            • easy to calculate statistics
            • good visual
      • Risk
        • Crossing roads
          • walk single file and use crossings
        • Getting lost
          • have an emergency phone number and meeting points
        • Injuries
          • carry first aid kit
        • Travel
          • wear seatbelts
      • Collection
        • Method 2: land use
          • Description
            • walk down high street and record use of each building
            • use google maps for secondary data
          • Justification
            • whether or not the economy is aimed at tourists
          • Weaknesses
            • biased results
          • Strengths
            • quick and effiecient
            • good coverage
        • Method 1: footfall
          • Justification
            • how many people are present in which area
            • to see a pattern in certain parts of town
          • Description
            • 1. visit three stratified sites
            • 2. count for 5 minutes how many people walk past
          • Weaknesses
            • biased
            • could have miscounted
            • no way to tell if they are local or visiting
          • Strengths
            • safe and has good coverage
      • Suitable location
        • Slowly increasing population
        • Physical and human attractions
      • Evaluation
        • Footfall
          • use a gps app to use evenly distributed points along the transect
        • Secondary
          • limited as we can only assume that the rest of Sherringham follows this pattern
        • Land use
          • use an up to date base map
      • Conclusions
        • Land use
          • 56% of buildings at the site near the promenade are tourist based
          • local buildings are further in land
        • Footfall
          • area closest to promenade has more tourists
        • overall
          • popular destination because of beach AND services
      • Analysis
        • Footfall
          • site 2
            • lowest footfall 9 people per minute
            • area was off the high street and lack of tourist services
          • site 1
            • mean footfall of 15 per minute
            • had tourist attractions and features
          • site 3
            • mean 13 people per minute
            • on high street but moving towards residential areas
        • Land use
          • mixed land use
          • site 1 (near beach) stands out as most touristy
