Creating maps and visualizing spatial data can be done quite easily today. The workshop shows how to create different kind of maps that can be used as illustrations for your research or conference papers or in lecture room for teaching. We will work with QGIS, an OpenSource, fully functional GIS software with sophisticated tools for map design.

The workshop will show how to create different kinds of maps and spatial visualizations for print and online use. It is designed for people with no or little prior experience in map making. If you bring your own ideas and projects, we can build on this. The topics covered will follow the interests of the participants, like creating topographic and thematic maps (e.g. choropleths, heatmaps, diagrams), map series (atlas function), data driven visualization, symbolization and labelling as well as basic cartographic principles (colours, projections etc.).

*** Over lunch, we will have our launch event for the GIS Hub, including an aperitif! We look forward to toasting with you! ***
