WTFGL: a beginner's guide to the future of open source web mapping
What is this GL maps thing? What are vector tiles again? How did we get here and where are we going? This talk will provide a (very brief) history of open source web mapping technology and a (comparatively longer) overview of what's to come. Most importantly, this talk will focus on why the future of web mapping is important and how we can all contribute to its success (beyond just contributing code). Beginners very welcome!
