GIS 4504 - Cartographic Design
The theory and art of map making developed over several thousand years and has recently been revolutionized by computer technology. This course is designed to expose students to the use of computer techniques in assessing technical design issues in the compilation of accurate and meaningful computer-generated mapping products. GIS software is used in a series of hands-on lab exercises to produce typical GIS mapping products. Emphasis is placed on reader perception of map design elements and also includes an introduction to appropriate software tools and application of concepts through lab exercises.
