Harvard WorldMap is an Open Source mapping platform developed to lower barriers for scholars who wish to explore, visualize, edit, and publish geospatial information. Google Fusion Tables is an experimental web application that allows for gathering, editing, sharing, and mapping data in the forms of various visualizations. Between these two tools, you have a powerful toolkit for creating, maintaining, and merging geographic data sets. In this hands-on workshop, you'll be introduced to both tools, and see how they can help you get the most out of geospatial information.
