Examines the tools geographers use to record, analyse and communicate about the world around us. Students will learn the conventions of presenting maps and diagrams, interpretation skills, what the different types of tools are and how they are used. Full-colour illustrations and line maps and diagrams will help students to see the link between the real world and the drawings we make to represent it. Examples used in the slide sets have an Australian focus.
