Geographic Research


This Achievement Standard involves carrying out and presenting directed geographic research, describing the relevance of geographic ideas to the research, and evaluating the research process.


Settings are the regions within which we study a topic. A local setting is used for carrying out your research project. (This is not always the case for geogrpahic reseach, but it makes it easier for you to gather information).
