The two maps show an island, before and after the construction of some tourist facilities.

can someone please check my task 1 and rate it.

The two maps show the same island. The first one is before and the second one is after the construction for tourism.

First looking at the before construction one, we can see a huge bare island with some sporadic plantation on the east side and few plantation on the west side. Also, the beach is on the west side of the island. The total length of the island is approx. 250 meters.

Now looking at the second map. We can see remarkably significant changes all around the island. A lot of accommodation units are built on the island, few on the western side near the beach and few in the center of the island. All the units on either area are conjoined together by a footpath.one footpath connecting the western accommodation area leads to the beach; tourist can swim near the beach. Furthermore, between the two accommodation areas, there is a restaurant in the south and a reception block in the center surrounded by a vehicle track conjoining the restaurant with it. This track also leads down to the pier where tourist can go sailing in the south sea.

Overall, comparing the two maps, a significant change can be seen after this development. Not only a lot of facilities are built for the tourist but also the sea is used for activities that may attract a lot of tourist from all around the world.

The two maps show an island, before and after the construction of some tourist facilities.

These maps show how an island has been changed after many facilities are built. Overall, it can be seen that there major changes mainly involving construction of accomodations and other services.

To begin, in the west of the island accommodations are built around some palm trees with foot paths connecting it with each others and another foot path to the beach in the far west where people can enjoy swimming. Another set of accommodation units are also built just to the east with their footpaths.

In the centre of the island which was a plain area, a reception block is constructed surrounded by a vehicle track , with a restaurant at the far north. At the coast which is at the south of island , a pier is built where boats sail and from which the vehicle track connected to the reception

The two maps compare the situations at an island pre and post the construction of some facilities which can be used for tourist purpose.

Overall, it can be seen that the island underwent a tremendous amount of transformation in order to be recognized as a tourist spot. Connectivity with and within the island was greatly improved while keeping the plantation intact.

Earlier, the island had no shelter or any type of options for an overnight stay. The island had some Banyan trees distributed across the spread. The beach was located on the west side of the island. Any kind of modes of transport was missing on the island.

After it has been decided to develop the island as an attraction, a pier was built in order to anchor the ships and boats which help people to commute from the mainland. The pier was connected with vehicle tracks to travel towards the reception building in the center of the island and the restaurant which was built in the north. The reception area was linked with footpaths on the east as well as the west side where houses were grouped in a circular pattern. In total, 15 houses were erected to accommodate the visitors. The western side of the colony now has an extended footpath which leads straight to the beach. The Banyan trees that were present before the construction of these facilities were left untouched.
