In this Maptime we'll be exploring the buildings of New York City. This will be a workshop revolving around getting building data from multiple sources (OpenStreetMap and NYC Data Mine) into several platforms, including Illustrator (Mapublisher), CartoDB and QGIS. We will then look at the possibilities for analysis and design using the data, such as looking at the city's building permits over time.
We plan on the first half of the meeting including practical talks about data and techniques and the second half being hands-on office hours for all things mappy. Bring your map questions, ideas, and works in progress, and share them with other people who are interested in brainstorming and troubleshooting!
