In this workshop you learn how to bring paper maps to the web and annotate them with data. The end result will look something like this. In the process you will learn about:

  1. the process of “geo-referencing” or converting a scanned map to a web-map-friendly image
  2. generating data to use as annotations in the map
  3. adding a second map (to serve as reference/present day)
  4. integrating all assets in an interactive web page

The workshop will run from 10am to 5pm, with a one hour lunch break at 1pm.
