The session will be broadly informative about the way web mapping works and practical in terms of having clear technical examples. We’ll explain integration points between web mapping providers and the interchangeability of providers and toolkits. Timing for this is critical for open source, since 2012 kicked off with Google implementing paid usage limits for their maps and increasing chatter about ads coming to free map users.
