Web Maps! An introduction to QGIS, TileMill, and the interactive mapping landscape (additional registration)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is a web map, and why would I want to make one? Web maps are great for explaining concepts to broad audiences. They are flexible, interactive, and familiar to all kinds of people. What kind of data do I need, and where can I find it? And finally, which tools are best for different situations? I will cover the basics of QGIS, TileMill, D3, and Leaflet and by the end of the workshop each participant will have created their own interactive web map. This session is open to coders and non-coders alike, though some GIS experience will be helpful.
