Craftful Cartography: Mapping to engage and communicate – With John Nelson
Walk through the cartographic process of creating attention-grabbing maps from scratch in ArcGIS Pro with Esri Inc. cartographer John Nelson. We’ll build several maps together using novel techniques and discuss the how and why behind each design choice. Each project is guided but will allow for individual expression. Several mini-demonstrations will be provided between projects to provide context and promote creative ideas that can transfer to the attendees professional work.
This workshop will start at 10am
This workshop will provide value both to those new to mapping and those with a wealth GIS experience. Novice attendees will benefit from a guided walkthrough of the creative mapmaking process; advanced attendees will be prompted to consider the design and communication inherent in their work and learn fresh techniques.
You will gain experience and confidence with some of the geoprocessing and cartographic capabilities of ArcGIS Pro, regardless of prior experience. You’ll receive source projects and materials to take back to your organizations to extend at your own pace and share with colleagues.
