WEBINAR: Thematic Mapping Synopsis Maps are everywhere and today it is more easy than ever before to create maps quickly using a wide range of software and tools. Thematic mapping is how we map a particular theme to a geographic area. It tells us a story about a place and is commonly used to map subjects such as climate issues, population densities or health issues.
