  1. Hi! I'm currently collecting data for my investigation, and I want to use a couple of different maps to showcase the information (such as dot-mapping, showing the area with color gradients, etc.). I'm working with traffic flow as a consequence of public works. so I wan't to portray graphically my data in at least two different types of maps. However, I have found online free map making resources to be limited or too simplistic. I used Google's "My Maps" to point down in rectangles and specific locations, but the inscriptions (such as bars, gyms and irrelevant places) are somewhat distracting.
  2. Hi, I'll have to decide on our ia topics by tomorrow! I came up with 2 potential ia topics but can't decide which one to do: Does my city fit the multi-nuclei model? What factors affect the sphere of influence of the local supermarket/store? With the 1st one I'll need to find certain features in the, say 5-6, potential commercial centers in my city, and use the definitions to prove that they are indeed CBDs, and then piece them together. There're a few classmates with similar topics and we're supposed to go in groups, but still it might be pretty tough fieldwork?
  3. Hi, My fieldwork report (IA) is due to be finished till the end of summer tbh my class has done a fieldwork investigation already in an urban park area in a bigger city, but the whole data collection was messed up and now i'm thinking about doing a research on my own :( I live in Hungary and the only place where they grow rice is around the little town where i happen to live...they have bio rice, wild rice and all kinds of stuff, anyways It sort of a HUGE deal, the paddy fields take up an area of 1000 ha land, they water it from a special canal and supposedly it satisfies 30% of
  4. Hey guys We're just starting to plan out our IAs and I literally have no clue what I could possibly do in my town/local area. It's a relatively boring town and all we have covered course wise are 3 options: leisure, urban environments, and hazards. My town/city isn't exactly a hotspot for any disasters, we have transit system, and the people here are generally affluent :/ the water's clean/inaccessible for collection, and soil is almost never truly "native". I guess I could always go to the nearby Met area, but any thoughts/suggestions/general ideas? Thaankss
  5. Hey, I have a quick question about the geo fieldwork. When is the fieldwork deadline for May '16 examination (as by when does the school have send it to IB).
  6. Hey guys, So I'm currently trying to write my fieldwork report, but I'm so stuck with the research question that I can't move forward. Our teacher was not very helpful during the data collection nor explanation what was the purpose of our investigation. The general topic is : ,,Comparison of the recreational provision in two contrasting areas of the city" I just cannot think of any kind of research question nor the geographic model I can apply it to. Does anyone have any ideas? Anything would be helpful. Thanks in advance
  7. Hello everyone, I have some problems with my geography IA. The research question of my fieldwork report is: Does the quality of public transport matter on the amount of traffic jams in the downtown of Szczecin? I colected the data by preparing a questionnaire, in which, first of all, I asked people about their sex, age group, place of living, number of people at home. Then I went into frequency of usage of public transportation, their most frequently used mean of transport (private car, bus, tram), assessment of public transport, its pros and cons, proposals of changes (all questions are close
  8. Hello everybody I'm doing my geography IA in urban environments - the topic is "What is the impact of Warsaw agglomeration on [my town] in terms of availability and structure of goods and services?". As my methods, I have a land use survey and a questionnaire survey, and I have a few doubts . About land use survey - I' m going to take into account only commercial uses of land (no public offices/residential areas etc.). The town is small, and my plan is to just go along all streets and record on a sheet of paper what I see I have 16 types of shops/services, and I'm wondering what kind of map
  9. Hi everyone, I am thinking about a topic for my Extended Essay in geography and at the same time working on my fieldwork (being also at the stage of specifying topic and methods). I feel a bit confused about the differences between IA and EE. Obviously, they differ in length and character; fieldwork is told to be just "fieldwork report" while EE is suposed to be more discursive. But... What does that mean in practice? They're both analytical, based on research and primary data. I'd really appreciate some explanation
  10. Hello everybody I am doing Geography at HL and I have to start planning my fieldwork (and finish it quite soon). As I have been absent from school since 3 months because of health problems, I'm forced to think it up and collect data on my own I really love geography and would like to do something of value, but I'm struggling to find an appropriate topic I'd prefer to avoid anything connected with big cities (that doesn't feel like my cup of tea). I live near a river - but I believe it would be extremely difficult to collect data by myself, with no special equipment (I suppose my school doe
  11. Hi, so I´m starting to work on my Geo fieldwork and I´m looking at the Sphere of Influence of two large universities. My question is, could anyone advice me on how many people I should survey? And also, should I ask more questions apart from where they commute from? I´m a bit at loss as to what to do and my teacher won´t help me until I give her a plan. Thanks!
