Let’s Make a (web) Map
There has never been a better time to make a web map. With modern, mobile-friendly mapping libraries like Leaflet, you can put an interactive map on your web page in just a few lines of code! After the course students will be ready to deploy their own web maps with the world’s most popular Javascript mapping library.

Nothing is required – feel free to simply watch. If you want to code along, you will need a text editor and the latest version of your preferred browser. Any text editor will do, but if you don’t have a favorite, Atom is a great place to start. Lesson code and data will be available before the course takes place. Course materials can be found online here.
