I also presented some work from Neal Hudson, Duncan Smith and Ben Hennig.
- Technology Summary for Web Mapping
- Choropleth Maps: The Good and the Bad
- Moving Beyond the Choropleth
- Example: CDRC Maps
- Example: named – KDE “heatmap”
- Case example: Country of Birth Map – concerns of the data scientist & digital cartographer
