GIS and CartographyExport this event to calendar

Monday, February 8, 2016 — 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM EST

GIS are powerful tools that can create “maps” quite quickly.  With great power comes great responsibility. This session will cover cartographic and design principals using ArcGIS in an effort to minimize bias and confusion when presenting spatial data. This workshop builds on “Getting Started with ArcGIS” (a recommended prerequisite for those with no previous GIS experience).

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Create a map with all required elements for presentation

  • Understand the use of colour for consistent map production

  • Use symbology to minimize confusion

  • Understand the principals of placement

  • Appreciate the fact that a map is never finished
