Animating, analyzing, collaborating & sharing -Web mapping is here to stay. In this session we will talk through everything from getting started to what is possible.

  • Community Planning: Less Maps, More Design
             Nick Doiron
    Cartographer Nick Doiron draws a thread between a Boston bike map, Blockee (a Google StreetView hack from Code for America), and Chicago's Transit Future campaign. All use web maps to open city planning to the public, but they avoid traditional GIS interactions and interfaces. Includes open source maps using Leaflet, ArcGIS Server, and CartoDB.


  • Quality of Life Dashboard
             Tobin Bradley
    The Quality of Life Dashboard is award-winning open source software created by Mecklenburg County GIS to assess the quality of life in neighborhoods. Leveraging HTML5, Leaflet, and D3, the Dashboard presents data visualizations of over 80 metrics in a way that's both powerful and intuitive. By providing the Quality of Life Study as open data and the Quality of Life Dashboard as open source software, we have empowered citizens to create new and insightful analyses and enabled other organizations like Lexington and Durham to deploy new versions of the Dashboard to service their own communities. This talk will demonstrate the Dashboard and review the technology and design techniques used to create it, as well as lessons learned along the way.


  • Defaulting to Open (at least trying to…)
             Justin Greco
    With open source technology coming to the fore front of local governments, it is becoming more common to defaulting to this technology for web mapping app development. However, it is still difficult to abandon using proprietary GIS software, especially server side. The City of Raleigh, has been leaning toward open source for front end development, while still using ArcGIS for Server for much of it's backend web services. This presentation will cover some examples of city applications, some 100% open source, with some hybrid. The majority of City of Raleigh web applications now are using the Leaflet JavaScript library in place of Esri’s JavaScript API, and some applications are moving toward open source database’s such as PostgreSQL and even MongoDB.
