Workshop #6
Online Mapping with the Google Maps API
Prof. Michael Peterson,
Chair, International Cartographic Asso-
ciation Commission on Maps and the Internet and University of
Nebraska at Omaha
Monday, October 28th, 7:45 am to 12:15 pm, CEU 0.4
Introduced in 2005, Google Maps has transformed the online
mapping experience. No longer dependent on a simple and slow
server/client relationship, Google Maps uses a more interactive,
tile-based system with AJAX to present an online map that allows
simplified panning and zooming. In 2006, the Google Maps Ap-
plication Programmer Interface was introduced that facilitated
the creation of Map Mashups – the mapping of data from on-
line sites. Map Mashups have had a major impact in how spatial
information is communicated. This workshop examines online
mapping APIs from Google, Bing and Yahoo. Specific examples are
presented using the Google Maps API that involves the mapping
of point, line, and area data. Both in-code and GeoRSS data will
be mapped. All examples use an HTML/JavaScript interface to the
Google Maps API. Some familiarity with HTML and basic program-
ming concepts - objects, arrays, loops - is expected.
After a short overview, theworkshopwill be conducted in a hands-
on fashion. Participants will connect to the Internet using their own
laptops and download a zip file with all of the course materials.
A Windows program will be installed to edit the HTML/JavaScript
code. Participants will need to have the access privilege on their
own laptop to install programs. Most of the workshop will involve
understanding how various GoogleMaps API routines are called and
how they are used to make customized maps. Participants will be
given a complete hand-out and all necessary coding examples.
Workshop #7
NHD Introduction and NHD Point Event
Creation and Application Utilizing StreamStats
Pete Steeves,
GIS Specialist, USGS Massachusetts Water Science
Monday, October 28th, 12:45 pm to 5:15 pm, CEU 0.4
The National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) serves as a framework
for geospatial data representing the surface water of the United
States. The features that make up the NHD have a basic set of at-
tributes that describe these features and at the same time these
features may have additional information linked to them describ-
ing other characteristics relating to hydrology, water quality, biol-
ogy, regulations, and a host of other data. Is this linked informa-
tion which contributes greatly to the power of the NHD to serve
not just as spatial data, but also as an information system, and
further as a base for analysis and knowledge.
This workshop introduces the NHD framework and how to use
the HEM Tool to create events on the NHD. This can be performed
on a case by case basis or by importing user databases. Attend-
ees will also learn how to import these user-created events into
StreamStats for analysis, including searches up and down the
hydrography network, drainage area estimates, batch delinea-
tion of watersheds and more. New and improved tools will also
demonstrate how to perform a variety of event searches on both
the high resolution (1:24K) NHD data and the NHDPlus (medium
resolution) data. The NHDPlus functionality will include linkages
to a suite of EPA point-event datasets.
