Mapping Our World

An essential component of training in geography is learning to make and use maps. The following images are maps created by our students for GEOG 323 Introduction to Cartography. They utilize a variety of geographic and stylistic techniques learned during the course of the class to build interesting and dynamic representations of the world around them. Browse each map to see how the students incorporate their own style into their spatial representations of population trends, economic differences, habitats, and more!
