Christian Gass will lead this session, which will provide an introduction to the basic geographic, cartographic, and geographic information systems (GIS) concepts essential to working with data in digital mapping and web maps. These concepts will be explained within the context of working with Open Street Map (OSM), a key global, open geospatial data source, within FOSS geo tools like QGIS, Mapbox, CartoDB, and leaflet.
