- HTML Basics
A very basic overview of HTML just so we can get our maps on a page.
- Connecting to an API
Adding the needed files and links to the Application Programming Interface
- Creating a map
- Saving and Viewing your work
We all want to see what we did so here's how!
- Adding WMS layers
To make our maps more useful we will need to add some data that pertains to a specific area or research topic. Here we will learn how to add data that is produced in a WMS service format.
- Adding KML layers
A lot of data is published in the KML format and shown in Google Earth. We can bring most of the KML files that work in Google Earth into our web map. There are still some features that do not translate from Google Earth to web maps such as animation and time series.
- Adding Markers
Sometimes we just need to add a specific point or set of points to a map to show data. A marker is a great way to accomplish this.
- Adding Image Overlays
When we have created a great image using some GIS application such as ArcGIS Desktop and we want to display that image on our map we can do that with an image overlay.
- Publishing to your Blog
This step brings our work together and makes our maps available to the world!
- Dress up the map
We want our maps to look great! Let's add a different base layer that can give our projects a little BLING!
Our new map looks a lot different and could possibly be more useful to our audience. I hope this map tutorial has been helpful to you. If you would like more information please feel free to contact me for tutoring.
