Maps and the Geospatial Revolution


I have signed up for the same maps class I took last year -- Maps and the Geospatial Revolution.  He said he likes to tinker and expected to make lots of changes to the class.  I know the labs will be at least somewhat different, as the platform on which they are built is constantly changing.

The labs were really interesting, for learning about current map-making technology (available to all of us, not just to people who work for huge agencies or corporations!).

It's a pretty light-weight class, work wise.  I think it's a one-credit course, when he teaches it face-to-face.

Thirteen minutes after he sent out an introductory email inviting us to participate in the class map, the map looked like this:

Highly recommended to anyone who loves maps, and to anyone who is curious about the many ways geospatial data is being used nowadays.
