Presentation 2

"Drupal 8 Geofield Mapping Stack: from Basic to Advanced" by Italo Mairo

Italo will show us the most recently implemented features in the Geofield Mapping stack (Geofield and Geofield compatible/dependent modules) for the management of an advanced Web GIS (Geographic Information System) application in Drupal 8. Italo will be tweaking the web application in real-time, describing and integrating the most recent and advanced features, such as the dynamic representation of Points and Geometry Collections (Polylines and Polygons) and the custom definition (and use) of Geocode and Reverse Geocode Web Services. Audience interaction is encouraged! This talk is most suitable for intermediate and advanced site builders and developers, though also appropriate for anyone interested in geo-mapping or geo-tagging with Drupal 8.
