“Interactive web mapping workshop with CartoDB”
Thursday, January 7th, 3:00pm, Macmillan 342
Come join Joey Lee and UBC TerreWeb to build your first interactive web map with CartoDB – a web based platform providing GIS and web mapping tools for the browser. In this workshop we will go over the fundamental pieces of a web map and work together to create an interactive and animated map for the web. This is an introductory workshop for using CartoDB and welcomes all skill levels, particularly beginners. If you can’t make the workshop, you can also do it on your own here: https://github.com/joeyklee/cartodb-van311-example.
Materials: Please bring your laptop, questions, and enthusiasm!
Duration: ~ 1 hr (but you can stay later if you want!)
About the speaker: Joey Lee is a geographer and interaction designer interested in computation and collaboration. His work is centered around maps and visuals – with data, technology, and code as his main media. He is passionate about technological literacy, cities, skateboards, and pixels and has been fortunate enough to wrangle up most of those elements into his work. In parallel with his projects around maps and teaching, he have spent his master’s studies developing new methods for mapping CO2 emissions in cities with the hope that more local efforts can be made to mitigate the impact of CO2 emissions on climate change. Joey is currently a Mozilla Science Fellow based in Vancouver, Canada experimenting with new ways in making science open.
