    I've got to answer this question:
    Briefly outline the relative advantages and disadvantages of field sketches and photographs in geographical fieldwork.

    It has to be about 300 words so not TOO brief!

    Any help?

    photographs provide an accurate record in time and space. sketches can be used to enhance the main point of what youre drawing. they also benefit over photos as light is less important however certain lights can give a blurry image to your eyes as well as photos.

    just digress a bit further, waffle a bit, just say about how different lights can affect each, photos may not be good in different countries e.g. geologists using it in foreign countries may not be able to upload photos. photos arent useful on theyre own etc.

    with photos you need to make sure you know what theyre relating to.

    field sketches you can put on orientation, scale etc etc.
