Dear Commons Community,
Today’s morning sessions included Mapping Software, Machine Learning, and Web Frameworks. I attended the Mapping Software presentation given by Steve Romalewski. It was obvious he knew his topic well. He provided an excellent conceptual overview of maps and mapping, available software, and file formats. He then proceeded to involve the participants in developing a mapping application based on 2013 New York City voting data.
In the afternoon, Lisa Rhody provided a practical presentation (Project Laboratory) designed to integrate all that has been presented this week. She challenged the audience to develop projects based on their new-found knowledge and then walked them through a process for designing and organizing their ideas.
Both sessions were very helpful!
