UNIGIS webinar on "Making Maps from OpenStreetMap Data", June 10, 17:00 

UNIGIS International regurarly provides webinars - so called u_Lectures 
(*). At June 10 17:00 MEZ Prof. Stefan Keller is speaking on "Making 
Maps from OpenStreetMap Data". Registration is now open: 

This presentation explains how to make a map with an own style given 
some amount of cartographic knowledge. The combination of freely 
accessible worldwide established OpenStreetMap (OSM) data and open 
source tools empower people to do their own cartographic visualization. 
A core element of this presentation is a handbook with selected software 
tools and programming scripts. First we go through the steps and tools 
needed to produce a basemap or a thematic map supported by a gallery of 
predefined styles. Then we look at related aspects of preprocessing like 
database (tag) homogenization and cartographic generalization.

(*) u_Lectures are presented by invited speakers from academia, the GI 
industry, public administration, NGOs and other actors in the field of 
Geoinformatics and GIScience. Available primarily to UNIGIS alumni and 
active UNIGIS students, this online lecture series serves as a 
professional and academic 'updating' opportunity within a generic 
'lifelong learning' framework. For general information on UNIGIS, visit
