Dynamic maps are everywhere -- in our cars, on our phones, in the news, and even in museums. Everything from government agencies to travel blogs use interactive maps to tell stories and share information using engaging media and data. In addition to showing just locations, spatial data can be very powerful in interpreting what's going on in the world, and can be an effective teaching aid in the classroom.
In this two-hour hands-on workshop, staff from the Geospatial Centroid will take you on an exploration of a few cool web mapping applications that you can use for teaching or just for fun.
Goals and Target Audience:
Geared towards professors, instructors, and graduate students who teach or develop course material, this session will show attendees how they can enhance their curriculum by incorporating maps and spatial data as a way to share and visualize information.
