Looking to design a killer custom map, but super confused by all the buttons in QGIS? Whether you’re a total geospatial novice or an ArcGIS pro, this workshop is for you. We will begin by discussing basic cartographic principles and analyzing a selection of curated maps - some well designed and informative, and others not so much. This will set you up for map-design success as you work on your own printable map. SKILLS GAINED: Attendees will practice designing a map in QGIS following best practices in cartography. You can bring your own dataset or use the example provided during the workshop.

Audience: Advanced undergraduates, Graduate students, Faculty, Staff
