Telling Stories with Maps

Workshop Yerba Buena Salon 1-3

Average rating: ****.
(4.33, 3 ratings)

We will discuss how to figure out what story to tell, select the right data, and pick appropriate layout and encodings. The goal is to learn how to create a map that conveys appropriate knowledge to a specific audience (which may include the designer).

We’ll briefly discuss tools, including pencil and paper. No prior technology or graphic design experience is necessary. An awareness of some basic user-centered design concepts will be helpful.
Understanding of your specific data or data types will help immensely. We’ll have a dataset on-hand to work with.
