I was delighted to give a workshop today at the annual meeting of the North American Cartographic Information Society (NACIS). These are folks with advanced knowledge of geographic information systems (GIS) and they make what I fondly refer to as “real maps.” There’s a wealth of mapping knowledge that has yet to make its way to the web and I hope some will fill that void.
Much of the workshop centered around the Mapstraction Sandbox, which lets you tweak code and watch it update live. Here are some other tools and code samples I shared during the talk:
- Find Lat/Lon with a Click
- Custom icon markers
- My favorite marker graphic (sombrero)
- Examples from the book
- Geolocation code ready for the sandbox
- Fancy auto-swapping imagery for Cambridge
My thanks to Tanya Buckingham from NACIS for inviting me after she attended my workshop at Where 2.0.
