Mapping 2010> Introduction

This session was organised by The British Cartographic Society’s Special Interest Groups: the GIS Group and Design Group, and was ideal for anyone interested in learning how to communicate results more effectively.

Afternoon of Wednesday 9th June 2010

Take the opportunity to create your own cartographic design using some of the latest releases in large scale mapping. Gain expert tuition on the advanced principles of cartography and how to apply these principles to commercial GIS software.

Before the meeting delegates are eligible to receive samples of OS Vector Map Local data from Ordnance Survey and UKMap from The GeoInformation Group to create a cartographic product for critique during the workshop.

Presentations and discussions included:

  • An introduction to UKMap
  • An introduction to OS Vector Map Local
  • How to produce high quality mapping from the datasets
  • Applying cartographic design to GIS output

Enjoyable and educational. Seeing and discussing ‘real maps’ was very useful.
