Description

Brief description:

What are the tools, techniques and time-honored practices for producing professional-looking maps?

This workshop will teach you how to apply design principles to reading and critiquing maps, then teach you how to use ArcMap’s styling properties to make more powerful maps and cartograms yourself. We’ll augment your entry-level ArcMap experience with practical skills and a studio environment to help you create more dramatic and effective maps within the Arc environment using techniques applicable to a variety of industries and purposes.
