In Online mapping for beginners - Chapter 3, I will show you how to create a map from a spreadsheet of point data. I'll walk you through several different data visualization types and show you how you can create them. Finally, I'll give you a quick introduction to data filtering, a useful tool for digging into your data and discovering patterns and stories. You can find all the data used in this chapter on our website, cartodb.com/academy.
The goal of the mapping academy (cartodb.com/academy) is to give you all the skills you need to be an online mapper. But that will take time. We also want you to be able to make your own maps from day one. In order to achieve both, we use CartoDB (cartodb.com) in the beginners course to allow you to skip the technical challenges to putting data and maps online. We will return to many of the more technical details in later sessions and your skills as a mapper will grow with every minute.
