This session aims to further student’s map reading skills and to understand how maps are used in decision making. Students take on the roles of police officers in a control room, and must decide what action to take following a road traffic accident. The only information they will receive is in the form of regular incident reports. They must use a map to locate the accident and minimise any further risks while helping the victims of the crash.
