Description

This course examines the entire process of building an interactive, web-based mapping application. It previews various technologies commonly used in building web-based visualization applications around municipal data. The course will use the Los Angeles Metro API to map every bus route currently run by the agency, map each bus stop, and conclude by displaying realtime locations of buses on any given route.

Although no prior programming experience is required, the course is specifically designed to bring out the "coder" in the "non-coder," and will teach the basics of internet programming languages. Different web technologies will be explored, including HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, Google Maps API, and Leaflet.
