SCO to offer Map Design workshop

Learn how to make more effective and attractive maps in this one-day workshop led by Ted Koch and Bob Gurda from the SCO. We will cover basic concepts and steps in map design and introduce methods to choose approaches appropriate to the type of data, the audience, and the medium.

Good map design is an essential part of using geospatial data to accomplish your goals. With today’s expanded computerized tools and media options, you have more map layout and output choices than ever. This workshop will help you make quicker and more logical choices.

The workshop will take place on Tuesday, April 8 in Madison (the Pyle Center on the UW-Madison campus), 8:30 – 4:00 p.m., registration fee $175.

Participants are requested to bring a map they have produced, for evaluation by the class.

This is one of many workshops offered at UW-Madison under the auspices of SIAC, the Spatial Information and Analysis Consortium. Link to redesign of website in SCO template
