Beautiful Vectors: Emerging Geospatial technologies in the browser

A session at Strata 2012

  • Mano Marks

Thursday 1st March, 2012

2:20pm to 3:00pm (PST)

Beautiful, useful and scalable techniques for analysing and displaying spatial information are key to unlocking important trends in geospatial and geotemporal data. Recent developments in HTML 5 enable rendering of complex visualisations within the browser, facilitating fast, dynamic user interfaces built around web maps. Client-side visualization allows developers to forgo expensive server-side tasks to render visualisations. These new interfaces have enabled a new class of application, empowering any user to explore large, enterprise-scale spatial data without requiring specialised geographic information technology software. This session will examine existing enterprise-scale, server-side visualization technologies and demonstrate how cutting edge technologies can supplement and replace them while enable additional capabilities.
