Maps are ubiquitous in today’s world. They are increasingly developed and delivered over the web for use on a variety of devices, ranging from desktop to tablet to mobile. This course focuses on the design of interactive web maps that  provide user exploration of geographic data over the open web. Lecture content is drawn from research in interactive cartography and geovisualization as well as user-centered design as it relates to web maps. Students will produce an original portfolio of web mapping applications using the Leaflet mapping library and JavaScript programming language, as opposed to proprietary software that is offered in other GIS courses.
