Maptime Mile High will be hosting a talk by Will Carter on web mapping big data. The amount of big data that is collected is continually growing. With our GPS enabled mobile devices being a primary generator, increasingly we leave behind a geospatial trail of where we have been and what was happening on our phones at the time. The question of how to find signals in a large amount of data collected leads to the exploration of different techniques to meaningfully display it on a web map. We'll focus on H3: Uber’s Hexagonal Hierarchical Spatial Index, an open-source platform to elegantly index the planet geospatially. We'll delve into the problem that spurred its creation and investigate its usefulness. Finally, we'll look at an example hexbin map and will provide thoughts on additional potential use cases.
