Making Maps into Webmaps with Leaflet.js
February 8, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am EST| Free
The workshop will introduce participants to one method of turning a map into a Web Map. The primary difference between a static map and a web map (in addition to the fact that one is on the web) is interactivity. We expect webmaps to respond to users by showing popups, highlighting features, or by being able to change layers and information. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the basics of turning a map into a webmap.
By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
* Embed a static map into a web page
* Select tiles for the base map based on their needs
* Make custom markers for data points
* Add interactivity to a map by including tool tips
Participants will get the most out of this workshop by taking ‘Making Maps with QGIS’, but no GIS knowledge is assumed.
