  • WORKSHOP (HALF DAY): Creating Maps on the Web with CartoDB

    by Andrew W Hill

    CartoDB an open source mapping platform that gives users the ability to design and publish maps online. The CartoDB platform stands apart from other mapping platforms in its ability to deliver maps built from changing data, styles, and filters. The dynamic properties of CartoDB make it an ideal platform to build maps from data that will change or to deploy maps that require frequent iterations of style and display properties. CartoDB supports millions of features, complex polygons, dynamic SQL queries, CartoCSS, multi-layer visualizations, and many other exciting tools to make some of the best maps on the web.

    In this workshop, we will walk you through the core features of CartoDB, from data import to map design and map publishing. After participants are comfortable with the basics, we will demonstrate how to make use of some of the more powerful parts of the platform. We will show participants how to design a map with styled dependent on the properties of your data and how by updating those variables, our published maps can reflect the new properties without any hassle. This will combine introductions to both CartoCSS styling and SQL for manipulating data. We will also show some of the more advanced methods for combining and publishing data on the web through CartoDB.

    Participants can expect to leave this workshop with the necessary skill to publish maps online using CartoDB. They will also gain a better understanding of how multi-layer maps are created in CartoDB and how advanced styles can be used to create beautiful maps with them. People who have never used SQL before will learn some of their first queries, while those that are proficient in SQL will gain a better understanding of how CartoDB can be used to leverage a relational database model to drive their maps. Finally, participants will leave knowing how to use CartoDB to go from data to maps in seconds, while still having the ability to iterate and refine those maps in the future.

    PREPARATION: Bring your own laptop. The web app used in the workshop requires a recent version of Chrome or Firefox installed so please ensure your software has been updated to the newest version.
