Introduction to geospatial data visualization
Learn why big data is and visualization is so important in the context of GIS and Map creation
Introduction to geospatial data visualization course contains topics that cover a broad understanding of spatial data visualization. The students will understand what data visualization is and why it is important for geospatial professionals in the XXI century. The difference between data and information is discussed and the four main steps of creating a good data visualization. Attributes are widely discussed as they are the most important factor in data classification techniques. Mapping methods and basic rules for designing maps are covered as part of the traditional cartography lessons. For taking this course the students must have a basic understanding of GIS, vector and raster data, geometry and attributes.
The path to becoming an expert in GIS and cartography starts by knowing how to visualize your geospatial data. Learn how to pass the right message with your maps!
