About the event:

Mack will be talking about maps and putting large amounts of data onto web-based maps, how to get more information onto maps, and some other ways we can dynamically visualize data using opensource javascript libraries like http://d3js.org/ and http://raphaeljs.com/ Mack will demonstrate how you can to build a simple map from open data sources using Google Fusion Tables. Mack will also show some examples of using maps to tell stories and communicate information.

Whether using data created by your own organization, or external sources, its very important to create a context for the message you are communicating.
