Maptime Diliman: Designing for Data | Show and Tell Night
Maptime seeks to open the doors of cartographic possibility and create a space for learning about mapping tools and technologies. Topics: 1. Designing for Data - Cham Mamador Design process to effectively communicate data 2. Developing a Spatial Analytics Dashboard for Basketball using Python and Dash - Ben Hur Pintor A web application (courtvision.bnhr.xyz) that maps and computes basic spatial statistics from basketball data. 3. Runonymous.xyz: An Anonymous Activity Tracker - Benjie Jiao A web application for keeping track of running and cycling activities without compromising privacy. --- Maptime is, rather literally, time for mapmaking and talking about maps. Our mission is to open the doors of cartographic possibility to anyone interested by creating a time and space for collaborative learning, exploration, and map creation using mapping tools and technologies. Maptime is collaborative, simultaneously flexible and structured, creating space to feature independent/collaborative work time. The inspiration for Maptime comes from hack nights and knitting circles, and we seek to provide a relaxed collective learning environment. We're especially interested in discussing new mapping tools in a space for people to create and learn together. Our goal is to provide a safe space for mapping with an open heart and without pretension. We hope you bring your own projects to work on, or just hang out and socialize or ask questions. Some people are experts, and some people are just getting started, but all of us are learning--which it's always best to do together!

    What we're about

    Maptime is, rather literally, time for mapmaking. Our mission is to open the doors of cartographic possibility to anyone interested by creating a time and space for collaborative learning, exploration, and map creation using mapping tools and technologies.

    This open learning environment for all levels and degrees of knowledge offers intentional support for the beginner. Maptime is simultaneously flexible and structured, creating space for workshops, ongoing projects with a shared goal, and independent/collaborative work time.

    Inspiration for Maptime comes from both hack nights and knitting circles. Both are models of spaces for people to create and learn together. Our goal is to provide this space with an open heart and without pretension. You can bring your own projects to work on, or just hang out and socialize or ask questions. Some people are experts, and some people are just getting started, but all of us are learning, so why not do it together?

    Maptime is hands-on, so don't forget to bring your laptop! All skill levels are welcome. Newbies are especially welcome!
