Map-Making Guide - Tara Swiger. Creating your ideal business is kind of simple. (Not easy, but simple) You figure out where you are. Right this minute. And where you want to go. In a realistic time frame. And then you map out all the things between here and there. You do that over and over, and there you have it. So why don’t we all do it? Why aren’t we already where we want to be? Well, there’s a few reasons, but one of the ones us creative-types struggle with is distraction. And so, because we don’t focus, we don’t get very far with anything. This is super-frustrating, right? But if you know this and haven’t done it yet, The Map-Making Guide is here to help. The Map-Making Guide keeps you focused through this process. You start exactly where you are (because that’s just where you should be!) Then you think through all the in-between stuff (more friendly questions, tips and examples of other businesses, just like yours!).

About the Course The past decade has seen an explosion of new mechanisms for understanding and using location information in widely-accessible technologies. This Geospatial Revolution has resulted in the development of consumer GPS tools, interactive web maps, and location-aware mobile devices. These radical advances are making it possible for people from all walks of life to use, collect, and understand spatial information like never before.

This course brings together core concepts in cartography, geographic information systems, and spatial thinking with real-world examples to provide the fundamentals necessary to engage with Geography beyond the surface-level. We will explore what makes spatial information special, how spatial data is created, how spatial analysis is conducted, and how to design maps so that they’re effective at telling the stories we wish to share.

Actually, news itself is broken. Almost all news organizations have abandoned reporting in favor of editorial; have cultivated reader opinion in place of responsibility; and have traded ethical standards for misdirection and whatever consensus defines as forgivable.

And this is before you even lay eyes on what passes for news design on a monitor or device screen these days. In digital media—websites in particular—news outlets seldom if ever treat content with any sort of dignity and most news sites are wedded to a broken profit model that compels them to present a nearly unusable mishmash of pink noise…which they call content.
