Module 3: GIS & Cartography



The goal of this week’s lesson in Introduction to GIS is to present some fundamental cartographic design principles that will help you produce more accurate and aesthetically pleasing map products using a GIS.  Fundamental map design elements are described that can lead to high-quality cartographic products (e.g., layout, balance, use of color and symbols, the figure-ground relationship, north arrows and compass roses, scale bars, metadata). Detailed information about mapping point, line, and area features using a GIS are presented with examples. Students created three maps of Mexico this week, implementing cartographic design principles. 

This week, we would like to highlight the outstanding work of Jason Lewis! 
Jason created a nice set of maps this week that combined everything we’ve covered in class so far. We really like his color choices and labels that all easy to read and understand​.
