Event Description

More than a pin drop icon on a page, location data is often used by businesses to enhance their website or app functionality. Location data can also be helpful in hackathon projects and location technology used by governments and social enterprises.

How do you set up maps onto your website, and how can you get the maximum benefits from location data?

At our workshop, The Power of Location Data: How to Retrieve and Use it, we’ll explore:

  • How to add maps onto a website using HERE maps API for Javascript
  • How to develop a web application enabling delivery services
  • Routing, geofencing, and other useful location skills

What’ll you need:

  • A laptop

There is no coding experience required! Anyone can come along and work with digital maps.
