    Map Design for the everyday Map

    Presentation Outline:

    Geography, and the maps that pour out of it, is just a blast. But sometimes we work so hard on the data and analysis that we don’t have time to “make it pretty.” But designing a map is more than just arts and crafts, it’s a critical step in communicating all of that investment. We’ll follow a rambling narrated process of a map maker’s design choices, packed full of hows, whys, rationalizations, and hunches from default to completion. There’s no one right way to make a map, but we’ll have some fun making this one.

    About The Speaker:

    John Nelson is a map maker, software experience designer, and writer at Esri. He works with the Living Atlas team, creating geographic data, web experiences, moderately-educational blogs, and mildly-instructional videos. He works in a small woodshed in Michigan and relishes the opportunity to chat with other map folks.


    To Join:

    Zoom info will be available upon registration.

    In order to receive a PDH certificate each participant must register for the event. Certificates will not be issued to those who have not.

    A Big THANKYOU to our sponsors!

    The Speaker Series would not be possible without you!
