About the event:

Mack will be talking about maps and putting large amounts of data onto web-based maps, how to get more information onto maps, and some other ways we can dynamically visualize data using opensource javascript libraries like http://d3js.org/ and http://raphaeljs.com/ Mack will demonstrate how you can to build a simple map from open data sources using Google Fusion Tables.
