Design a Custom Map in QGIS

Design a Custom Map in QGIS Online

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to create an eye-catching custom map using the open-source mapping software, QGIS. We will begin by discussing best practices in cartography and then analyzing a selection of curated maps - some well-designed and informative, and others not so much. This will set you up for map-design success as you learn how to create a custom, printable map using the QGIS Print Layout. A sample dataset and tutorial will be made available so that participants can practice on their own after the workshop. To get the most out of this workshop, you should have a basic understanding of GIS concepts and come ready with QGIS installed on your personal computer. If you have no prior experience with GIS but would like to attend, make sure to complete the “Learn the Basics of QGIS” workshop available asynchronously here: https://umass-gis.github.io/workshops/content/basics-qgis/.
