TileMill lesson

My final session of the conference was a lesson in the free TileMill software from MapBox. It was like the third major mapping revelation in the three days I was here, building on what I had already learned about Google’s maps engine and Fusion tables.

The lesson from the session is all transcribed here:

http://investigativenewsnetwork.org/2013/10/the-inn-guide-to-creating-a-data-driven-map-with-tilemill/

On that page are other links, including a Google Drive script that helps with geocoding plain addresses and sources of shape files for map outlines.

What remains to be practiced and learned in this level of mapping complexity is the available styling options.
