Integrating Map APIs into your website and Using Google Fusion Tables

Jennie Murack

Jan/25 Fri 09:30AM-12:30PM 14N-132, bring your laptop

Enrollment: Limited: Advance sign-up required
Limited to 40 participants

This session offers a hands-on opportunity for integrating online maps into your website, from both Google Maps and OpenStreetMap and using Google Fusion Tables. Google Fusion Tables is a modern data management web application that makes it easy to host, manage, collaborate, and publish data tables online. Together, they make a powerful mapping platform, allowing people to easily upload data, and publish it on a map. Students will make a Google Map from scratch, including KML files (points, lines and polygons) developed in ArcGIS, and points included in easily edited XML files. We will also talk about interacting with the map through HTML widgets. Some familiarity with HTML, XML, and any modern programming language will make this workshop easier, but is not required. You will be working in Javascript but will largely be copying lines of Javascript rather than writing original code.
