This webinar introduces how to critically examine maps as an editor, develop and edit requirements for maps in text publications, and review the results. By looking critically at maps and their context, art manuscripts, possible resources, and checklists, webinar attendees will develop their understanding of how to edit maps with the same care and rigour they edit text.
