Program description

This course aims at staff from governmental organizations and private companies who are specialized in the field of topographic, thematic and/or cartographic web-oriented production

In addition to contemporary digital cartographic output, GIS-derived products are increasingly used to disseminate geographical information by means of intranet, internet and multimedia applications. Static, dynamic and user-interactive maps are offered to meet the needs and demands of customers. These relatively new means of communication require their own specific approach to effectively convey the appropriate cartographic message. This course seamlessly blends cartographic fundamentals with the developments in modern geo-visualization techniques.

This is achieved in a series of related modules by means of both theoretical and practical in-depth training in the principles and application of map design, visualization techniques, and the production management aspects that are required to effectively produce state-of-the-art cartography for topographic, thematic and web-oriented output.

Map production workflow and quality management; Topographic information production; Thematic and interactive web mapping; Web cartography and mapping projects.

To equip the participant with conceptual and practical knowledge of modern Cartography and Geo-Visualization technology. The course focuses on functions for cartographic visualization of geo-information in analogue and digital form.
