The mapping project is a creative elective module that gives form to innovative cartographic concepts and visualization solutions for challenging issues in cartography and GIScience. In this course, Cartography M.Sc. students develop strategies and tactical approaches to creating sufficient user- and purpose-oriented cartographic products based on different tools, visualization techniques and methods. This course provides a framework where students can choose a topic of their interest and focus on the development of their skills and abilities in problem-solving, and on expanding their expertise and competence in the use and application of various technologies and media.
