The two maps provided intend to showcase the numerous structural alterations made on a coastal town named Pentland.
The construction of the said facilities was undertaken between 1950 to 2007.
In general, it appears that Pentland has become a much more modern town. The number of changes can be observed like new houses and apartments, cinema, swimming pool, park, multi-story car park, and a yacht marina.
one of the interesting changes was the construction of a cinema in the southwest of the town. Secondly, the grassland in the southeast corner was converted into a residential area, the same pattern can be seen in the northeast of the town where apartments were built near the newly converted yacht marina.
Another development change was the construction of shops on the roadside. Another striking change was the replacement of the industrial area with multi-story car park in the west of the town. A final chage was the swimming pool and a park next to new car park.
