Event description

Description

Have you ever wondered what is the best way to display a large set of geospatial data in an interactive manner? Maybe it's flight destinations, election results, public transport departures or real estate values.

At this workshop you are going to learn how to use Google Maps and Deck.gl to visualise data. * Deck.gl is a JavaScript library that runs on your browser that renders visualizations using the GPU.

Some neat examples of what you can do with this knowledge: https://deck.gl/?fbclid=IwAR3FANsLu-Trvg9AyQVY_0aQEdlTwn7k_yj2PFrHq6DU3F_3aDdWuSDAx7U#/examples/overview

Speaker

Once again we are happy to collaborate with Kristina Simakova, Independent Consultant, Android & Maps Google Developer Expert.
