Principles include direction, scale, grids, projections, and spatial transformations, spatial data analysis, data manipulation decisions, color theory and application, and principles of cartographic design and critical evaluation. Prerequisite: MATH 1030, 1050 or equivalent and GEOG 1010 COURSE OBJECTIVES: Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to: Clearly articulate map purpose and audience Design effective maps by carefully considering each aspect of the map design process as it relates to map purpose and audience Make appropriate design decisions for output medium and production equipment Compose map elements (title, scale, legend, explanatory text, directional indicator, border, sources, credits, etc.) to enhance map purpose Strategically reduce detail and emphasize map purpose using generalization techniques Effectively use type, symbols and color to communicate map purpose Sixth Edition 2009 (Required) Author: Borden D.
