Join Christina Boggs-Chavira as she presents:
How KonMari Can Help You Make Accessible the New Normal for Your Maps
The Northern California Chapter of URISA invites you to join this free one-hour webinar on April 24 starting at 11:00 a.m.
Remember Marie Kondo (a.k.a. KonMari) who taught us on Netflix how to de-clutter our homes in order to spark joy in our lives? Christina applies this approach to cartography, sharing the best practices she uses to ensure that the static maps she creates and shares digitally can be interpreted by anyone, including folks who happen to be visually-impaired.
Topics Covered in this Presentation:
• What’s the point?
• Basics of a map
• Basics of an accessible map
• Alternative text
• Clear written description
• Map Objective/Needs
The webinar will be presented via Zoom. Pre-registration is required; if you are interested please visit this Eventbrite page to register no later than 5:00 p.m. on April 23.
We will send those who register the Zoom connection information a few hours before the webinar begins.
