Task 1: The maps below show the changes that have taken place at the waterfront area of a town called Darwin between 2009 and 2014.
The two given pictures delineate the town of Darwin in its development in a period of 5 years, starting from 2009.
As can be seen from the diagrams, it is clearly evident that there were a number of shifts taking in the town such as the presence of harbour, university building and the disappearance of the industrial area.
In 2009, its school was located in the Northeast corner. Adjacent to school, there was an industrial area. To the south of it were trees, three residential buildings and a large industrial area. The areas opposite them were a lake and a convention center. Next to them were two swimming pools and the sea.
Further transformation could be seen in 2012, when the harbour was constructed in the sea and there was a footpath erected to connect to the harbour. One of the significant developments was that the university building was built to the north and three residential buildings erected in the centre of the town. Two industrial areas were torn down to make way for a swimming pool and a lot of trees. The school, conventional centre and lake remained unchanged.
