GEOG 353 - Cartography and GIS

Geography 353 reviews essential elements of cartographic design and visualization in the context of geographic information systems (GIS). The core of this course is the laboratory project: students will locate data on the world wide web (WWW), process the data so it can be mapped in ArcView (GIS and mapping software), and design and produce a series of maps based on the data. Students will learn to construct basic HTML pages, containing the project maps, which will be placed on the WWW at the end of the semester. Lab work is informed by lectures that focus on the concepts, frameworks, and technical issues of cartographic design and visualization. No prerequisites. Fall (Group I)
