This website is designed to get researchers, educators, and outreach professionals started on sharing geospatial data over the web. It is organized from simple to complex techniques. Some require knowledge of GIS Software, but many do not. Sharing geospatial data and maps on the web does not need to be complicated or expensive. In fact, some methods are free AND simple.
Use the table below or navigation buttons on the right to explore some of the different approaches to putting maps and geographic data on the web. Note: This website is currently under construction.
This website is part of UConn CLEAR's "Maps on the Web" project, which is funded by the USDA NIFA Water Quality program. The project will include national and regional workshops, webinars, this website, and content on the eXtension map@syst website.
