This course introduces current development of Internet mapping and
advanced cartographic skills in web-based maps.
By using web-authoring tools (Microsoft SharePoint), Virtual
Globes (Google Earth and ArcGIS Explorer), opensource tools (Leaflet,
GeoJSON, R) and Internet Map servers (ESRI ArcIMS, ArcGIS Server, Google
Map API), students can learn both the techniques of Internet mapping and
the principles of web-based cartography, including multimedia,
animation, 3D visualization, and user interface design.
The lectures will focus on the theories and principles behind the
Internet mapping, including distributed component technologies, graphic
designs, and network communications.
The lab exercises will focus on the practical applications and
Web design skills for Internet mapping services.
