Video: Map Production


Title: Map Production

Summary: Understand map production for spatial data. Map production is the process of arranging map elements on a sheet of paper so that, even without many words, a lay person can understand what it is all about. Maps are very often produced for presentations and reports where the audience or reader is a politician, citizen or learner with no professional background in GIS. Because of this, a map has to be most effective in communicating spatial information. This video explores the common elements of a map and how they can be combined to create a pleasing product.
