Adventures in campus mapping - HighEdWeb Florida 2013

Campus Mapping: so many data sources, competing services, and oh so many pieces of data to correct. The thrust of this presentation is two-fold: first, to look at common systems (Google MapMaker, etc.) through which errors about your campus physical plant can be corrected for various map clients – and then, repurposing a combination of those data sources to (fairly) easily create a campus map for your own campus.
