Understanding web programming fundamentals focused on geospatial applications using Leaflet, Turf.js, and PostGIS
This course is oriented towards achieving a conceptual understanding of how web technologies work together to form a web application that can be used to distribute, collect, or analyze geospatial data.
The focus will be on understanding concepts. You will not have to install any software on your computer. You will not be asked to follow along step-by-step. Instead the goal will be to provide the background information necessary to understand how the internet works, which technologies you really need to understand and when to use them. We will also explore additional technologies that you may want to explore further as your understanding and needs grow.
We will be using readily available open source software so you will be able to create web maps without spending any money. The concepts you will learn, however, will be equally valid if you have access to commercial GIS software and web servers.
My intention is to provide the information that I wish I had available before I began my journey into the world of geospatial web development. I spent a lot of time trying to put together the big picture from the detailed information that was available and I wasted a lot of time pursuing technologies that really were not necessary. My hope is to help you navigate the world of web development more efficiently than I did and that after taking this course you will be better prepared to take more detailed courses from myself or others.
- Two main groups of students will benefit from this course. First will be GIS users who are interested in understanding how to distribute and collect data using the internet. Second will be web developers interested in adding geospatial applications to their toolkit.
