Cartography and Map Construction

You learn how a map should be designed to fulfil its purpose. The theoretical part of the course deals with design, typography, colours, layout, generalization, graphic technique and map law. Substantial parts of the course deals with practical exercises and assignments. If you have broadband Internet access you can undertake many of these from home. After completion of the course you will be able to organise map production and make professional maps, both advanced printed map products and maps as illustrations in scientific reports.

Further course information will appear soon on this page. Until then, information can be found on the department website.
