How did folks make maps before GPS and satellite imagery? In this workshop we’ll focus on plane table mapping. Using just a flat surface, a sheet of paper, a straight edge, and a pencil we’ll learn techniques to create accurate maps for large geographic areas. With plane table mapping, if you can see it, you can map it. 

All sessions assume attendees have no previous experience using GIS. Sessions will be hands-on with step-by-step tutorials and expert assistance. They are free to attend and are open to the UVa and larger Charlottesville community.
