Slocum and Li will team-teach a new course, "Mapping and Analysis in the Cloud." Available to both undergraduate and graduate students, the course will cover a broad range of approaches for visualizing and analyzing spatial data via the web and associated cloud computing. The fundamental goal will be to enable students to develop their own web mapping and analysis applications. An important element of this will be the creation of map and analysis mashups, in which students use tools and data from multiple online sources to create web mapping and analysis applications. The instructors will create a website that will include all material developed in association with the course, including links to online resources used, material used in lectures and class discussions, and examples of student assignments and independent projects (including all source code and documentation).
