GS1110 - Cartographic Concepts

This course will engage students in the exploration of the cartographic communication process and the need for positional accuracy using various geospatial referencing techniques. By introducing concepts and processes that are central to cartography, the course will enable the student to build a broad cartographic foundation for subsequent studies. Additionally, the student will understand how positional data is collected, and will be able to accurately construct a flat map representing portions of the earth. Through a series of lectures, seminars, exercises, and reports the students will compute and maintain geographic accuracy while encoding real world phenomena using specific cartographic communication concepts.
