Course Overview

A basic understanding of cartography is a must for any geomatics professional. This course introduces students to the basics of mapping; it starts with an in-depth discussion of spheroids, scale and coordinate systems. Then, we delve into map projections and what the ramifications of each type are. Why – for example – were Mercator maps not used during his life-time, but became popular only years after his death? A big part of map making is map design and map presentation. Both items are discussed in detail using numerous examples. Along the way, we touch on feature simplification and generalization. The course includes many hands-on exercises to illustrate each topic and experience benefits and pitfalls of different methods alike.
Recommended: CCTG101 GIS Concepts and Application Types, equivalent courses or practical experience.
