LAR-611 Cartography I: Map Making

4 Credits

This course is the first in a cartography sequence that refines mapping as both a technique of inquiry and a legacy of landscape-making. The objective of Cartography I: Mapmaking is to explore techniques found in the overlap between georeferenced datasets and modeling software including but not limited to analytic diagrams, temporal montage and projection by surface. Using a hands-on approach, workflow encourages a telescopic reading of land-based systems informed at a variety of scales. Both communication and analytical skills are paired with the mechanics of technique. This course works closely with Studio LAR 601 and integrates weekly lectures with technical workshops.
