Finding Your Way: Fixing (Conflicting) Map Data and Building an Interactive Campus Map

WRK6 Workshops Track

Broadway I/II

WEDNESDAY, 1:00 - 4:30 PM

Wayfinding and map data: so many (conflicting) data sources out there, so little time - but so much potential for losing your future students before you’ve even made the pitch. We’ll look at ways to correct your campus data in major mapping systems, and then we’ll use that to form the building blocks of a fairly easy to build, inexpensive, mobile-friendly interactive map for your campus. This workshop requires at least a working knowledge of JavaScript.
