Dr Max Nathan


In this session, we will explore the capabilities of the Google Maps Platform and the Google Maps JS API. We will see how we can use the API to not only create simple maps with markers, but also how to visualise our spatial data. Then, we will see how we can extract information from the map, like elevation, distance, or directions information. All that, simply and effectively!

This is an Online Event. Please sign up via Eventbrite by clicking Book Now above. CASA staff and students can join directly via the link we'll share beforehand.
