Tired of publishing PDF maps on the web? Come learn the fundamentals of how to translate your map into a web map. This workshop is intended for students, nonprofits, and government agencies interested in incorporating web maps into their work.
By the end of the workshop you should know how to make a simple web map, plus understand web mapping in broad terms, and have enough information to hire a developer, write a grant, or know where to start with your own learning objectives when your goal is to create and sustain a larger project.
By the end of the four weeks you will be able to:
- Prepare maps on online mapping platforms.
- Evaluate the structure, style, and fundamental purpose of a web map both critically and pragmatically.
- Differentiate the various ways to build interactivity into maps on the Web.
- Evaluate the feasibility a web mapping projects based on resources available for implementation.
- Contribute to OpenStreetMap and other crowdsourced mapping projects
- Locate the resources you need to learn more.
*While no prior GIS coursework is required for this course, familiarity with geographic data types will help you make better use of course materials.
This class meets once (1) per week (6pm-9pm) for four (4) weeks/sessions. NO CLASS MARCH 27.
