Map-based Data Visualization With Open Source Tools -G4

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

The explosion of mobile device usage and the introduction of HTML5 Geocoding APIs in desktop and mobile browsers have led to a proliferation of applications that are increasingly tied to the location of the user. How can we understand what is actually happening in location-based computing applications? While data visualization skills are a key competency for modern software developers, geographic visualizations have long been the domain of experts using expensive, proprietary software. Recent advances in open source Geographic Information Systems have opened the doors to the new world of map-based information display to all developers willing to step inside. This session will cover the most common and powerful data geo-visualization techniques, providing real world code examples in JavaScript and Python using freely available open source software packages and libraries.
