Phoenix, AZ /

Web Design & Development Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

Galvanize 515 East Grant Street , Phoenix, (map)

At this Meetup we'll let you peek under the hood on how we build a Google Maps alternative using open source tools augmented with our own code.

Mapping is a combination of web development and web design.

Tools and methods that will be presented:

- Data gathering using Openstreet Maps

- Map data storage using Elasticsearch

- Web services using WMS or Tiled WMS

- Rendering engine using a TOML like markup (like CSS but for maps)

- Canvas, SVG, GeoJSON, Javascript

- Client side rendering vs server side

- Performance considerations

- Search (find addresses, landmarks)

- Map updates and caching

You don't want to miss this Meetup :)
