The World Wide Web has become a valuable means to display, collect, and share geospatial data and maps. This course will explore the use of web technologies for developing web map applications. Students will learn to produce audience appropriate maps in the web environment using a variety of technologies and methods.
You will be asked to work through a series of modules that present information relating to a specific topic. You will also complete a series of projects. Please see the Sequencing and Resources section for our suggestions as to the order in which to work through the material.
This course makes use of the ArcGIS Pro software package from the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI). Directions for installing the software have been provided under the Sequencing and Resources section. If you are not a West Virginia University student, you can still complete the exercises but you will need to obtain access to the software on your own.
If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to contact us. We hope to continue to update and improve this course.
