New maps in the new medium: Teaching web cartography for a distributed workforce

Discussions of online education often center on pervasive media, which allow for immersive and distributed education. However, when the curriculum is explicitly designed to train students in the expert use of software and systems for web cartography, how might educators best realize these opportunities in online education? We discuss two challenges: 1.) how to teach distance learners a technologically-demanding, yet cartographically-focused curriculum, and 2.) how to design and implement this curriculum within a quickly shifting landscape of workforce needs?

MAPPING INTERACTIVE GEOSPATIAL LINKED DATA

Linked Data (LD) for geospatial data systems benefit from map interfaces for visualization. Although map interface capabilities such as plotting geographic coordinates retrieved with SPARQL queries are widely used, these forfeit the advantages LD offer for browsing a graph. The described project explores the challenges and initial solutions for developing and using a map interface to browse triple data.
