Map Design and Cartography


The course focus on application of ArcGIS software for visualization of primary and secondary geospatial data and preparation of an informative map. ArcGIS is a geographic information system (GIS) for working with maps and geographic information. It is used for creating and using maps, compiling geographic data, analyzing mapped information, sharing and discovering geographic information. The primary geospatial data mainly collect from GPS handheld device and import into GIS platform whereas secondary spatial database is collected from various organizations. Using of various symbology type and labelling style to each layers of the features. Working on attribute table operation of geospatial features such as adding of new field, calculate geometry, field calculator, field statistics, summarize along-with edits, removes and joint tables. The data may be acquired from georeferenced of scanned map using of control points and digitization in term of point, line and polygon features. In the same way, google earth platform is used for the extraction of recent database of the earth surface such as landcover, road network and landmarks data. The proper compilation of each captured data into ArcGIS platform finally concluded into a better and informative map design and preparation. The process of map composition starts with preparing a layout for the map. Apart from the data, a map has certain other things that make map a package of effective and clear communication.
