Web Mapping Course

GEOG 371: Web Mapping is a crash course in learning how to build communicative, story oriented maps that lean on open source data and software. For the final projects, the students have a lot of freedom to take the different web mapping platforms they were exposed to during the term and incorporate their own research or personal interests. The students gleaned skills from this course that they can take with them into future projects where geo-visualizations shared over the web will enrich their work. Check out the Fall 2017 projects.
