Alan McConchie, Lead Cartographer of Stamen Design, is leading a workshop on Data Visualization and Maps in Bellingham, 70 minutes south of Vancouver. The two afternoon classes (one on Saturday, one on Sunday) can be taken separately, or as a pair. For more details and to buy tickets: https://localgroup.studio/classes-workshops/
The first 4 hour course introduces the fundamentals of data visualization, the art and science of visual communication using quantitative and qualitative information. The second 4 hour course surveys web map design principles, with an emphasis on styling geospatial data as part of a data visualization interface. We will review the main considerations involved when communicating data geographically, how to style online maps accurately and legibly, and which programs to choose when creating the most compelling geospatial data visualizations.
