Coding for Cartographers

8th November 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm
UCL, Department of Geography, Pearson Building, G07, Gower Street
London, WC1E 6BT United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Maps have become an important tool for the visualisation of large and complex datasets. As a result, many are produced by people with an abundance of specialist technical skills in data manipulation and analysis, but relatively little knowledge of what makes a good map. Conversely, many cartographers and designers have not acquired the technical knowledge to produce data-rich maps that meet well-established cartographic standards. This course will provide a brief introduction and overview of the software and skills required to…
