Maps help us understand how the real world works and vividly represent things that are not so easy to notice. Maps are also used in science, businesses, urban planning. During the workshop participants will try themselves in the roles of a cartographer and an analyst and develop maps based on urban data. This workshop will combine both theory and practice. The participants will learn how to analyze various datasets, figure how intersections, samples and other spatial operations are applied, and work in QGIS and Mapbox.
The workshop will be led by Urbica
team, a Moscow-based design and consultancy firm focused on human experience in the cities. Urbica makes sense of large unstructured datasets and turns them into a comprehensive picture, developing data interfaces and putting it on a map to provide visually intuitive solutions for their customers. For instance, Urbica has developed an online dispatcher service The Moscow Velobike
bike share network, created a visual display and analysis of people's movements around the city for Magistral Bus Network
in Moscow, and also developed the new design for MAPS.ME
