Better Mapping

Better Mapping

However you use, share or visualize geographic information, whether through traditional cartography or any form of Geographical Information Systems, the need to understand how to create better maps is paramount. With use of geospatial data at an all-time high, never before has the importance of understanding the fundamentals of good map design been greater. A poorly designed map can at least diminish effective communication of information to users and at worst result in misled and even dangerous decision making.

Better Mapping promotes good cartographic practice to the mapping industry and beyond. Our day of seminars features a number of expert presenters, covering a range of topics and techniques that are designed to help you improve the quality, accuracy and effectiveness of your maps and presentation of geospatial data.

We are also developing a series of online resources to help you create better maps as part of your workflow.
