However you use geographic information, whether through digital mapping software and GIS (Geographical Information Systems), or both, the need to understand how to create better maps is always increasing. Never before has the importance of understanding the fundamentals of good map design been more important. A poorly designed map can at least diminish effective communication of information to users and at worst mislead, perhaps seriously.
Better Mapping promotes good cartographic practice to the mapping industry and beyond. Our one-day seminars feature a number of expert presenters and introduce a range of topics and techniques that are designed to help you to improve the quality, accuracy and effectiveness of your maps. We are also developing a series of online resources to help you create better maps as part of your workflow.
