This webinar was presented on November 20, 2015.
The theme of Geography Awareness Week 2015 is “The Power of Maps”. This special week (which also includes GIS Day) recognizes and celebrates the role of the map in modern communication, decision making, and systems management.
The use of web maps for all these purposes has exploded in recent years, driven in part by the development of user-friendly web-based data visualization and analytics platforms. Web maps are fun, interactive, easy to deploy and easier to manage than ever before – whether you are a trained developer or even if you have never written a single line of code.
But what do these new technologies mean for GIS professionals? How important is it to keep up with the latest online mapping tools? What are some of the advantages of integrating these kinds of tools into your organization’s geospatial toolbox?
Will Cadell from >sparkgeo (@geo_will) joined us to introduce some key concepts in webmapping and give a demonstration of the CartoDB platform in action. The presentation was followed by a brief Q & A session.
Watching this webinar qualifies for 1 CPD hour under the Meeting Attendance category for OLSs.
