Maps in print and on the screen to help make sense of the space around you.
Coming from an outside background, my maps seek to combine approaches from the established domain of cartography uses physical printing and the new school of users and design that primarily use maps on an electronic screen with multiple zoom levels.
For geospatial data storage, I prefer postGIS and geoJSON.
For my interactive maps, I use Tilemill, leaflet, and mapbox.js. Print, I like the GIMP and Inkscape. I’m an open source fan.
Here’s a few of my projects. I am available for freelance, on retainer, or to join a map team. Contact me (willskora at gmail dot com) if you’re interested.
Check out my github page for the code.
