West is up? Nevermind!

Meeting for an introductory workshop in Salzburg last weekend, our new UNIGIS professional students were already perfectly working together making THEIR map. It consists of 23 (quite active and human ;-) ) symbols, representing 23 home locations between Kiel and Klagenfurt and between Bern and Vienna.

"Collective mapping"
While one might argue this map fails to meet several cartographic conventions including correct orientation, we would reply that map orientation does not matter at all, as long as they got good orientation for the intensive year of UNIGIS-studies to come. All the best to you for this challenging endeavour!
