Making Interactive Web Maps: Finding the Right Tool for You

Making Interactive Web Maps: Finding the Right Tool for You


In Person

This workshop introduces various online tools and libraries to create maps for publication on the web. We’re going to cover simple and more advanced no-code tools, as well as a few options for more custom maps that require coding. This course does not teach any particular tool in detail; instead, each tool will be briefly introduced to help you figure out which tool might work for your use case, dataset, skillset, and time scale. Part of the workshop will be reserved for testing different tools with your own data, with the trainer available to help you troubleshoot any issues.

This is a beginner level event. No previous knowledge on the topic is required/expected and the trainer will cover the basics of the method.

Those who have registered to take part will receive an email with full details and a link to join the session in advance of the start time.


This workshop will be taught by Sarah Schöttler.

After taking part in this event, you may decide that you need some further help in applying what you have learnt to your research. If so, you can book a Data Surgery meeting with one of our training fellows.
