Custom Web Maps @ GoGeomatics Toronto February Social!

February 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Speaker Series: Join Daniel Loughran, co-organizer of GoGeomatics Toronto for our February social where he will discuss how to get started in creating your own custom web maps! This month’s social is taking place on Monday, February 25th (7:00PM) at Betty’s On King (Upstairs!).

This month, Daniel will be sharing his knowledge on how to get started creating your very own custom web maps. At recent events, some attendees among our group have asked for advice on how to stand out from others when applying for geomatics roles, and which additional skills are useful to learn. This discussion will be focusing on a few of those skills in the form of some basic HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. These in conjunction can be used to create your own web maps, utilizing freely accessible platforms including Leaflet, and the Google Maps API! If you would like to follow along, code templates will be provided, so feel free to bring your own laptop! Additional information on free resources will also be provided to help you hone your web mapping skills in your own time!

Speaker: Daniel Loughran works as a consultant GIS Technican with Metrolinx, where he has worked for the past 12 months. Daniel completed his undergraduate program at Liverpool John Moores University in the UK where he obtained a Bachelors in Geoscience, and recently graduated from Ryerson University with a certificate in Applied Digital Geography and GIS. Daniel also has a background as a Data Analyst, having worked in the offshore oil and gas industry from 2011-2017. His knowledge of web development is mainly self-taught, having started with a free online course in August 2016!

These monthly socials are a chance to network with others in the geomatics field to chat all things GIS, remote sensing, surveying, and more in a casual atmosphere. They’re always fun, and always free. See you there!

Please RSVP to let us know you’re attending.
