Georgina presents Cartography and map design workshop

In recognition of Water Technology’s commitment to high quality mapping to support our floodplain and coastal studies Georgina Race, Senior Principal Spatial Analyst, co-presented a cartography and map design workshop on behalf of the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute (SSSI).

The workshop attracted 16 SSSI professionals with a wide range of backgrounds and expertise, but with a common interest in achieving better cartographic communication.

The topics covered included the cartographic process, spatial data fundamentals, map design principles, and map production. The workshop combined expert lectures, based on material developed by URISA, with numerous practical group exercises and discussions.
