GEOG 863
GIS Mashups for Geospatial Professionals



Through the previous three lessons of this course, you've learned how to build useful web maps using the Google Maps JavaScript API. Esri also offers a web mapping API for the JavaScript platform; what you learned earlier in the course has you well positioned to pick up the Esri API without a terrible amount of effort. This lesson covers the similarities and differences between the two APIs and culminates with you creating a mashup using the Esri API.


If you have any questions now or at any point during this week, please feel free to post them to the Lesson 6 Discussion Forum. (That forum can be accessed at any time by clicking on the Discussions tab within Canvas.)
