Tutorial: NYPL Labs Member Shares a DIY Primer on Creating Digital Maps Using Free Online Tools
An interesting and useful blog post/tutorial by
The post is based on a workshop gave at the National Library of Colombia’s 2nd Digital Book Week.
I thought it would be useful to share that workshop since it encompasses a lot of different processes and tools that make digital cartography today very accessible. It is a primer on working with various free web mapping tools so you can make your own awesome maps.
Even if you don’t begin creating digital maps the tutorial is still a great way to at least get an idea of the concepts, tools, and tech used to create them.
