The Department of Geography and Environment at London School of
Economics seeks a well qualified person to provide two one-hour first
year undergraduate lectures on the subject of mapping/cartography.

The lecture should include material on:
* Introduction to maps and mapping
* Types of map
* Scale
* Projection
* Basic characteristics of maps
* Ways of visualising data
* Choropleth maps
* Classifying data
* Aerial units (MAUP, ecological fallacy)
* Use of colour
* Marginalia
* Digital cartography (advantages and disadvantages)

On the basis of the two lectures, students are required to undertake
a choropleth mapping project using MapInfo (this is taught
separately) and prepare for a possible exam question on mapping.

The lectures will take place at LSE at 1000 on two Mondays out of
21/11/05, 28/11/05 and 05/12/05 (there may be some flexibility here).

You should be able to demonstrate an ongoing track record of
university teaching related to mapping/cartography.

Hourly rates for this teaching are dependent on experience.

If you are interested, please email a short CV/letter detailing your
experience to:
