The objective of this session is to give a gentle introduction to making maps with D3.js, a Javascript library for data visualisation and interactive graphics. D3 has powerful geo capabilities and is a widely-used tool to make maps on the web.

D3 is not easy to learn, as it requires at least some basic knowledge of webtechnologies such as HTML, CSS and Javascript, but we will try to start with the very basic concepts before proceeding with mapmaking, so that D3's logic becomes undestandable. Please ask a lot of questions. Beginners are very welcome!

In the second part of the session, we will have two quick lightning talks:

- Simon Hirsbrunner (Deixis): "Introducing Origeo: A text-based map editor"

- Alsino Skowronnek: "State of the map" - A short recap of this year's OpenStreetMap conference in New York City"

There will be drinks again and enough room to meet fellow mapheads. We will probably walk over to a nearby bar afterwards. Looking forward to seeing you!
