Great Streets and Gateways > Analytical Work

Analytical Work:

Under this assignment each student team documented and analyzed aspects of the natural and man-made environment focusing on the eastern end of Madison Corridor in Madisonville. The assignment was accomplished in two parts. Part one: Reconnaissance, research and documentation in which the subject was investigated and documented graphically, quantitatively, or in text. Part two: Summary representation in which the illustration of the subject was abstracted to emphasize key findings. The analysis was broken into four scales of inquiry: regional, vicinity, community, and site.
