Getting Started with Leaflet + Esri Leaflet!

Azavea 990 Spring Garden Street , Philadelphia, PA (map)

We're going to crack open our text editors and get started with an incredibly straightforward way to get custom maps up and running on the web -- Leaflet!

The Leaflet open-source JavaScript mapping library is one of the simplest and fastest ways to create lightweight Web mapping applications. Built around a small core library, Leaflet has developed a massive plugin ecosystem allowing developers to supplement Leaflet with additional functionality as they see fit. The Esri Leaflet plugin adds support for the kinds of Web services many organizations use to share and serve their data. In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to leverage Leaflet along with the Esri Leaflet plugin suite to create lightweight, modular mapping applications that take full advantage of widely available ArcGIS services.

As always, Maptime is hands-on and beginner-friendly, so bring a laptop but don't feel like you need to know anything about the topic beforehand. If you already know a ton about web maps, come and share your expertise. Maptime is all about learning how to map together! 

We expect all attendees to abide by the Maptime Code of Conduct.
