Making Beautiful Maps

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Maps are a wonderful way to convey geographic information, but making them can seem like an intimidating task. In this session, we'll run through freely available GIS software, how to use it, and how to beautify the maps that they produce. For those looking to make even simpler maps, we'll also run through where to find free image files that can be easily color coded with free software. It's a straightforward and simple way without having to dive into GIS. The session will start with demos and lead to a discussion/Q&A about cartography and the role of maps in science writing. This session will be aimed at anyone interested in maps or geographic information.
