Doing the skills checklist for the aqa exam in a week or so....any idea what a trip line is? Looked in lots of text books and google search but can't find what they are?!

They're in the Darren Christian skills book.  Basically single lines that show direction of a trip (not route) and are not weighted for number of people making that trip.  So if you were doing sphere of influence study at a shopping centre, you'd ask people where they'd come from and draw straight lines from each settlement that someone had come from to the shopping centre.  If you want to message me an email address I can send you the ppt I use for cartographical skills.
