In Online mapping for beginners - Chapter 5, I will show you how to create a multilayer map for the web. Multilayer maps allow you to combine different datasets on the same map, I imagine a lot of you will be making these! 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.
