Interactive maps are an extremely useful feature for users on your web page. This course, Web Mapping with OpenLayers 3, introduces web developers to OpenLayers 3, the OpenGeo Suite JavaScript library that allows developers to quickly add customizable, interactive maps to web pages. You'll be introduced to the basics of mapping, including projections and scales. You'll then dive into the OpenLayers library and see how to create a map using free, publicly available geographic data, as well as using various built-in controls to interact with the map while building a fun, geography-based game. By the end of the course, you'll know how to add a detailed map to your website that users can interact with and customize for their needs.
