GIS 4504 (4 credits)

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 automated geographic mapping products. ArcView is used in a series of hands-on lab exercises to produce typical GIS mapping products. Each class includes lecture and discussion of cartographic design concepts. 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. In-class time is provided for work on lab exercises. It is likely that additional lab time outside of class will be necessary and/or valuable for students, particularly in completion of the final project. Prerequisite: GIS 4101.
