    Abstract

    This study identifies and analyses a 1928 photographic survey of the River Pinn in Middlesex, North West London and undertakes the survey again in 2007 to produce a comparison. It is soon clear to see the large differences in the river and its catchment area. The 70 years between surveys has seen a huge expansion of villages into towns and then into suburbs of the capital city, London. The two surveys were then published as an online interactive map created using a combination of Geographical Information Systems software and Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML). The website offers map of the rivers route at different scales and then comparative analysis of photograph pairs, one from each survey. The study goes onto investigate the current use of online resources in education between Key Stage 3 and A Levels and proposes specific units and areas where this study's final website artefact could be incorporated in the scheme of work.
