Introduction to Cartography

The aim of the Introduction Cartography course is to offer to second semester Geographers Students all the necessary theoretical knowledge related to Cartography. Through a series of lectures and laboratory exercises, students will gain the knowledge required in order to select the most suitable mapping methods for designing efficient maps. Through this course, students are trained in map design emphasizing the concepts and techniques that determine how to design and create the most effective map. The content of this course gives the opportunity to students to experience fundamental aspects of cartographic synthesis and to learn how to visualize with the most efficient way the geographic entities using tools geoinformatics. At the end of the course students should be able to choose and apply relevant mapping techniques to develop maps suitable for effectively revealing and communicating the spatial structure of particular phenomena.
