Dates
Friday, November 13, 2020 - 9:00am to 11:00am
Location
via Zoom (link will be sent to participants 24 hours before the workshop/event begins)

This workshop is in the past and registrations are unavailable.

All times are Pacific Time Zone (Vancouver, BC, Canada).

You’ve likely used Google Maps, Yelp, or Craigslist, which all have integrated web map elements, but have you ever thought of creating a web map for your research project? An interactive web map is a great tool for both data exploration and communicating your research with a wide audience, academic and public alike.

The workshop will begin with a basic overview of technologies, principles, and terminology related to web mapping, such as map tiles and web services. The remainder of the workshop will introduce you to using ArcGIS Online to create a web map.

Software

ArcGIS Online. You do not need to install any software but need to send email to gis-software@sfu.ca to request an ArcGIS online account at least one day ahead of the workshop if you wish to participate the hands-on part.

All times are Pacific Time Zone (Vancouver, BC, CANADA time). Registration opens on August 31, 2020.

Note: This workshop will be run on the Zoom platform. You don't have to install the Zoom app on your computer, but it might make it easier to use all of the features.

An interactive web map is a great tool for both data exploration and communicating your research with a wide audience, academic and public alike. This Web Mapping workshop series of 2 workshops will help researchers across disciplines understand what a web map is and how to create one in two different ways, namely ArcGIS online and R.  The first workshop (Intro to Web Mapping) is not the prerequisite for the second one (Web Mapping with R ) - feel free to attend one or both:
