Events > Mapping 2013 > GIS & Map Design SIG Workshop

As part of the Annual Symposium the GIS and Map Design Special Interest Groups have joined together to present the half day interactive workshop GIS: Good Design Matters

GIS: Good Design Matters - Afternoon of Tuesday 3rd September 2013
13:00 The presenters will pose the question: Does a growing number of GIS users necessarily mean more poorly designed maps?

This will be addressed by:
  • outlining the principles of map design,
  • discussing the online resources available to help GIS users produce cartographic products
  • demonstrating how to make the most of ArcGIS Online from a cartographic perspective.
The delegates will have the opportunity to bring along their own maps for an expert critique on their map design.

While GIS has revolutionised the way people use geographical data, for many, the process of turning these data into meaningful information is either elusive, too time-consuming, or both. This workshop will examine the value of incorporating good cartographic design in your workflow and demonstrate a range of practical ways to improve the quality of maps in your GIS.
