I want to learn how to better use Mapbox. Using it for my Pittsburgh dataset project was actually the first time I have used it so I'm sure there is a lot more I can do with it. I've always kind of been interested in Mapbox because lots of apps and websites use Mapbox maps and I always wondered how they worked. I also like how you can add multiple layers to show different datasets over a geographic area. There are also ways to visually represent data using the size or color or objects on a map so I want to figure out how to use that to effectively visualize data.
Here are some of the subskills I want to learn how to do to make my maps more interactive and better illustrate the data.
This is my tentative schedule of the different things I want to learn how to do.
|Look for examples of Mapbox maps to see what is possible and what I want to try||2|
|Watch and work through tutorial videos and articles||3|
|Find more data to use and display||2|
|Play around different types of layers, colors, ways of representing data||3|
|Add multiple layers to map and add ability to toggle them||2|
|Implement timeline for data||3|
|Figure out how to let user's add their own points||3|
|Finalize page changes and blog post||2|
There are links to some of the articles, videos, and tutorials I will use to learn more about using Mapbox.
