Join Jason VanHorn for an in-depth discussion in this video Overview of map mashups, part of GIS on the Web.
…The world of online mapping is very exciting, but…before we begin building maps in these interactive environments,…I want to position our conversation around the concept of map mash-ups.…So what is a map mashup?…A map mashup has three parts.…The first is HTML.…Since we are in an online internet environment, we need HTML so…our browser can deliver our necessary content.…The second part, is the Map Interface,…which we need to see our visual location information and ask spacial questions.…
The third, of course, is mappable data, without which, we would just have a map.…Together, these three parts constitutes what is called a map mashup.…So let's touch on each of these.…First, we have HTML.…In this course, it's not necessary to know HTML, but…I do want you to know what's happening behind the scenes.…HTML is simply a series of text keywords or…tags that your browser is able to interpret.…With the HTML you can have different kinds of coding and…scripting in programming languages that help control what happens on the web page.…
