Creating “Lightweight” Digital Maps with GeoJSON Workshop

Jeannerod, D. (Participant)

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


This event proceeds from the AHRC project I am leading. GeoJSON is a format for plotting geographic data structures (points, lines, regions and movement between them) on a digital map. It also provides the ability to annotate digital maps. GeoJSON is “lightweight” because it avoids the use of costly mapping software and incredibly large data files. This workshop, teaches how to create basic maps using GeoJSON code and Mapbox. And also how to annotate a basic map. Finally, it teaches how to show movement on a digital map
