Introducing the WorldMap
WorldMap is a new open source mapping platform from Harvard’s Center for Geographic Analysis.
Users of WorldMap can quickly create a map from their own data layers or from data layers already added to the WorldMap. Viewers of created maps can control the data layers seen on the map from a sidebar and can choose to view the data on top of Google Maps or OpenStreetMap map tiles.
WorldMap has already created over 700 mapping layers and users have created more than 500 maps. Therefore, as well as creating their own maps, users can search and view maps from the hundreds of maps already created.
