See all of elijah's blog posts

Affinity Bridge's Mack Hardy presented at Net Tuesday Vancouver's February 2013 event about using maps to visualize data. Mack talked about maps and putting large amounts of data onto web-based maps, how to get more information onto maps, and some other ways we can dynamically visualize data using opensource javascript libraries like http://d3js.org/ and http://raphaeljs.com/

Net Tuesday co-organizer Amy Kleckner collected Mack's slides, a screencast of his demonstrations, a presenter video, photos and the event's tweets into a storify. Enjoy!
