"The speed and automatic function of ICT, offers a number of advantages to teachers of Secondary Geography. It can for example enable the drawing of graphs, so that pupils can observe change, e.g. variations between seasons or variations of weather in temperate and tropical countries, or so that pupils can compare similar elements in data between contrasting localities, e.g. comparing bus services in rural and urban areas in the UK. Data can be sensed and stored automatically, so that monthly and seasonal patterns can be graphed from daily readings at a later date."
