Using OpenStreetMap Data to Build Your Dynamic Maps

A session at State of the Map US 2013

Saturday 8th June, 2013

2:15pm to 2:45pm (PST)

Many projects today are collecting data continuously and want to build maps that show the latest trends. Whether the data is documenting street congestion, air quality, human movement, or a host of other subjects, this data can be combined with OpenStreetMap to build dynamic and real-time maps for the web. This session will demonstrate how CartoDB can be used to store, manage, and sort OSM data, and then be used to combine dynamic data with OSM layers to create real-time maps. While publishing dynamic maps on the web has traditionally been a technological challenge, CartoDB now makes it easier than ever before. CartoDB serves maps from a live database with on-demand filtering and styling. It also utilizes caching strategies that mean your maps are always fast but never get out of sync from the data on your account.
