Data and Formats for Your Maps

General
Location: Ballroom III Level: Novice
1 Presentation File:
Data and Formats for Your Maps Presentation [PDF]

Having leading-edge features and capabilities is great, but if you can’t get data into your system or users can’t take their data out, then it’s a dead end. This workshop will cover popular formats (KML, GeoRSS/GeoJSON, GML, GPX, Shape Files), services (Google My Maps, GeoCommons, Map Warper), and interfaces that are emergent and upcoming in the Where2.0 space.
