In the world of modern digital maps, the lines between cartography, art, and web design are blurring. In this workshop, explore this intersection with senior map designer Vanessa Knoppke-Wetzel and cartographer/artist-in-residence Jonni Walker. Take a journey through creative map design and learn new tools for working with location in data, coding, and art.
