Conservation Cartography and Visualization
This course covers fundamental concepts of cartography and visualization using geographic information systems (GIS) and illustration programs (Adobe Illustrator) as it is applied for conservation organizations and projects. Students employ design principles to create effective maps, incorporating data from a variety of formats used to communicate complicated environmental issues to a diverse map user audience. Hardcopy and web maps are produced to communicate conservation patterns and outcomes targeted for a diverse map audience. Infographic, animations, 3D maps, and other visualization techniques are explored to convey the importance of environmental conservation through the science and art of cartography.
