GIS 505 - Geovisualization & Cartographic Design Techniques

Credits: (3) White. Prerequisite(s): Instructor Permission Required

Communicating geographic concepts, problems and solutions are key to geovisualization and spatial design, the modern art and science of cartography. The foundational principles of the course will be grounded in the fundamentals of traditional cartography using GIS in combination with design and analytical software. This course will immerse students in color theory, symbology, typography, along with 2-D and 3-D design layout within web and print media. Hands-on learning experiences will emphasize and apply scientific visualization techniques alongside the art of data visualization, both in terms of how to use visualization to understand spatial data and to create strong visual communication.
