“Mapmaking for academics” (also known as “TileMill for academics”, “Making scholarly maps with TileMill”, etc.) is a loosely structured workshop teaching basic mapmaking skills for academics in any discipline. Participants use TileMill to create a highly customised map of their research: adding data, styling it with CartoCSS, and drawing elements from OpenStreetMap as a background as needed.
If you enjoy the workshop, please consider organising and/or teaching the next one. Get in touch – we can help!
