Description: Map of Nova Scotia with several settlements highlighted with blue pointers. The data is recreated in a table below.
The map is also available interactively (somewhat) on Google Maps.
|City||Number of Students||Distance from Halifax|
|Musquodoboit||2 students||72 km|
|Londonderry||2 students||125 km|
|Pictou||2 students||164 km|
|Great Village||1 student||120 km|
|Ingonish *||1 student||453 km|
|Walton||1 student||91.6 km|
|Victoria Settlement||1 student||180 km|
|Bridgewater||1 student||106 km|
|LaHave||1 Student||119 km|
|Tatamagouche||1 student||148 km|
My goal is to plot out the distances that students came from over time.
I'm mostly doing this out of curiosity, I admit. I don't think the information I'm gathering is necessarily going to be terribly useful to what I'm going to end up writing, but it may be, and I'd hate to have to recreate it from notes later.
Plus it looks cool. *grin*
