Maps are an essential tool for us to understand our space (physical, topographic, infrastructural) and place (cultural, affective, emotional), they have also been used to tell impactful stories and uncover untold perspectives.

In this workshop, we will learn more about maps and web mapping fundamentals. We will go through the process of setting up a web map using Javascript and the Leaflet.js library. We will also build a simple dataset, then geocode it.

We will use glitch as our environment for technical portions of the workshop.
