CANCELED: Map Literacy Quest and Scavenger Hunt
Everyday we interact with visualizations of space aka maps. How we interact with a map is determined by many factors. Who made it? What is it trying to convey? Where did the underlying data come from? We ask these and more questions, often unconsciously, as we decide whether a map contains the information we seek. This workshop will begin with an interactive yet brief history of the map, introduce the concept of map literacy and finish with participants interacting with a series of digital and paper maps in a scavenger hunt using the information they obtained during the first part of the session.
