Arts Festival

This map combines Cartodb.js and the MarkerCluster plugin for Leaflet. Since it's displaying participants in an annual neighborhood arts festival, I used the beautiful watercolor base map from Stamen. The map uses interactive clustering to indicate locations with multiple participants.

Campus History

University of Minnesota Campus History

I created this map exploring the history of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus using a combination of the ArcGIS JavaScript API, ArcGIS Server, and ArcGIS Desktop. It includes temporally aware raster and vector data that can be explored using a time slider and buttons.


Minnesota Historical Aerial Photographs Online

Originally written using a since deprecated version of the Google Maps API, I updated this map to utilize the ArcGIS JavaScript API. It provides access to over 200,000 historic aerial photos from all over the state of Minnesota.

CartoDB and Leaflet

Mapping Google Form responses

This map displays responses to a Google Form. When a user submitted the form, a trigger inserted the response into a CartoDB table. That table was queried and displayed using Leaflet, resulting in a very quickly produced, semi-automated map usable on mobile devices.

Paper Map

Arts Festival Paper Map

Created using ArcGIS and Adobe Illustrator, with data collected via a Google Form and processed using Microsoft Excel, the process of creating this map made clear to me the need for cartographers to engage with a wide variety of tools to reach a desired result.
