There is a big difference between making a map and making a good map. Tricks exist to assemble the right information on the map without cluttering. By selecting symbols and labels wisely, a map can tell a complete story. This course covers tips and tricks on making those choices, as well as teaching students about visual hierarchy – how to draw attention to certain details and away from others.
Topics: map basics, map document best practices, colors and symbols, map text, elements of a layout, above and beyond layouts, graphs and reports, and sharing maps.
