DVS Workshop: Map Design
Sponsor(s): Libraries, Research Computing, and Social Science Research Institute (SSRI)
Making maps is a creative rather than a purely technical process. Even if you can expertly use the latest and most advanced tools, you still have to make design decisions based on your specific audience, data, and goals. This workshop will present an overview of concepts in cartography and provide practical techniques for creating effective, visually appealing maps. We will explore design principles by analyzing plenty of examples. No specific software experience or GIS knowledge is required.
Type: WORKSHOP/SHORT COURSE, RESEARCH, and TECHNOLOGY
