Model Answer

The maps illustrate changes to the village of Pancha from 2005 to 2015.

Overall, it is apparent that the town became more developed(became better) with the addition of new facilities and constructions such as roads, modern utilities, and general expansion of current residential, commercial and educational areas.

By 2015, the single dirt road present in 2005 had been converted into a highway lined with road signs, telephone poles(where telephone lines are hung up) and telecommunication towers(used to connect phones) in the bottom left corner (south-west)of the map. On the left side of the road, the marketplace had grown (got bigger) and become more organized, while tne sizes of me homes along the road had also become bigger.

To the right side(southeast) of the road, in the bottom corner, the area demarcated for pagodas(temples) now allows for an additional building. Just above the pagodas, two homes have been removed and in the upper right corner, the town built a secondary school to complete the primary school. It is noticeable that in 2005, most homes only possessed access to telephones but by 2015 satellite service (uses satellites to provide internet, TV shows) had become common.
