NMP Transition to Web Mapping
To make the transition, our final two modules introduced students to using CartoDB. Here at New Maps Plus, we love CartoDB because of the ease with which it integrates high-functioning PostGIS and PostgreSQL database functionality with an easy-to-learn interface. We're more than pleased with the caliber of our students this semester and the maps they've produced. Here's a few examples from Module 08 using CartoDB:
- Cancer Incidence in the United States, by Maria Renee Horn
- US Cancer Mortality, by Ethan Gicker
- US Cancer Mortality Rates, by Lauren Winkler
- Rate of Cancer Deaths by US County, by Ray Hasenyager
We also want to share with you a little taste of the New Maps Plus curriculum. Here's the lesson students used to produce these maps:
Keep your eyes peeled for more great maps coming out of New Maps Plus program.
