Maptime is an organization started by enthusiasts in San Francisco who love (and live on the cutting edge of) making maps for any reason using any medium. Their primary focus is Web mapping. Maptime has a chapter here that usually meets near Dallas City Hall, but on Wednesday, March 18, I will be hosting their March meetup at DMS!
There really is a lot more to making a Web-based map beyond just using Google Maps! Come join us and use your favorite tool (or explore one of the tools mentioned in this slideshow http://maptime.io/anatomy-of-a-web-map/) to build static or Web maps portraying real city data using cutting-edge technology.
Need any more incentives to come out? Here are several more:
- I will personally fund the cost of printing a nice, large paper copy of your map on our Wide Format Printer if desired.
- We will be providing means to serve your map app on the Internet for all to see, if desired.
- Thanks to Maptime HQ, we will have pizza at the event!
I hope to see you there! Please RSVP on Meetup or on this thread so we can get an accurate headcount for pizza.
