Mapping tools keep cropping up all over the place, and data is everywhere. What are the pros and cons of the various mapping libraries? Should this information be visualized as a heatmap, as a sea of points, or something else? What are some new directions to explore in mapping and visualization? This workshop will cover how, when, and when not to use various tools and techniques for visualizing geographic information.
Sha studied and worked in architecture before diving headfirst into data visualization at Stamen Design. At Stamen Sha worked on projects for clients like CNN, MTV, Adobe, and Flickr. Last year, Sha cofounded a startup called Movity focused on visualization and cities. Movity was recently acquired by the real estate company Trulia to bring their work to a national audience. Sha is endlessly fascinated by maps, data, design, and cities.
