Sign up now for our next workshop on Data Visualization Foundations, now scheduled for June 2nd & 3rd! This hands-on class, which we developed with dataviz expert Curran Kelleher (author of D3.js in Motion) will teach you the fundamentals of visual communication with complex information. It’s well-suited for beginner-to-intermediate practitioners and anyone who wants to develop more dataviz literacy.
We also still have seats open for our fast-approaching workshop Designing and Working with Spatial Data on March 24th & 25th. This workshop is similar in structure to Data Visualization Foundations, but teaches a completely distinct set of materials focussing primarily on map-based data and visualization.
We think these two classes work great as a pair, teaching you both the spatial and non-spatial aspects of dataviz. To encourage you to register for both of them, we’re offering a special 25% discount for any attendees who take a second (or third, or fourth!) class with us. This also applies to any former students of ours! Get in touch with alan @ stamen.com to request a past-attendee discount.
Finally, our classes are half-price for full-time university students. It always makes sense to supplement to your college studies with some hands-on experience using the cutting-edge tools of the trade!

Collaborating with them to build these map styles has been a pairing of some of our favorite things: working with OpenStreetMap data and delivering custom map styles.

At Stamen, we love OpenStreetmap. I mean we REALLY love it. We’ve used it in several of our mapping projects. We want to share our enthusiasm for OSM and continue to foster a culture of map knowledge-sharing and collaboration. And with that… We are pleased to announce the first ever OpenStreetMap Oscar awards! While awards...
We had a great time last month at the annual meeting of the North American Cartographic Information Society, talking with old and new friends about a shared love of maps. We also had a record number of team members giving presentations, both about our Stamen work and about some passion projects. We wrote a previous...
