When
presenting your data you should also describe it. Try not to treat
them as separate sections. For example, if you produce a scatter
graph using Excel (TM)
cut and paste it into a word processing package and describe it
below.
You
should attempt to use a wide range of appropriate
techniques to present your data. For example use a range of graphs
(bar/pie charts/scatter graphs etc.), maps (landuse/sketch map
etc.), tables, photographs and statistical methods to present
your data. Make sure the technique is appropriate. For example
if you are trying to find out whether there is a relationship
between two sets of data consider a scatter graph rather than
two bar graphs.
Presenting
Data
Photographs/field
sketches
Make
sure your annotate (label) all photographs and sketches you include
in your project. This shows the examiner how you are using them.
Without annotations your pictures/sketches are meaningless.
Graphs
Bar charts to show frequency, line graphs and scatter graphs to
show correlations, pie charts and % bar graphs to show percentages.
Maps
Locational maps, choropleth maps, dot maps, distribution maps
etc.
Tables
Listing data, grouping data and ranking data etc.
Include
all your fieldwork notes/data in its original form. Do not
rewrite it. It is evidence that you completed the fieldwork for
the project.
