Mapmaking 101

82 minutes
Recorded 1/24/2019
Instructor: Larry Orman

In today's visually saturated world, communicating with maps requires great skill. But, GIS maps and interactive mapping applications are often not effective at engaging users and holding their attention – and most people creating maps have not learned best practices. Heavy focus on data, analysis and the complexities of geospatial information can quickly ruin a good map. If you need simple strategies to make your maps clearer and more visually appealing, join GreenInfo Network founder and expert cartographer Larry Orman as he discusses steps in good visual design, how to improve a less-effective map, map design pitfalls and more.

How will you benefit from this webinar?

  • Create maps that function as stories that unfold in layers of perception
  • Learn to view maps through audience eyes and implement strategies to direct the eye
  • Increase your maps’ impact by removing extraneous information (and keep what’s important)
  • Apply good visual design principles to your maps
