GEOG 863:
Web Application Development for Geospatial Professionals

Summary and Final Tasks


In this lesson, you built your first apps using Esri's JavaScript API. Even the simple map that you created involves a number of different technologies (HTML, CSS,  JavaScript, the Document Object Model, and the Dojo JavaScript framework) and it is important that you have a firm understanding of this material before moving on. If you skipped over the w3schools tutorials referenced in the lesson, be sure to go back and complete them.  You might also use any free study time to work through other JavaScript references such as the ones recommended in the syllabus.

In Lesson 4, you'll see how to spice up the rather dull product of Lesson 3 by adding data layers.  You'll also learn about a number of coding tools and strategies that will help you as a JavaScript developer.
