lecture: Command Line Geography
The keyboard is the new compass !
In this entertaining session, we will see how our beloved shell can fit into the workflow of the modern cartographer in the most surprising ways, and we will generate maps in the least expected places (your terminal, your desktop, your IDE...)
- analyse and visualise geo data with expressive SQL one-liners ;
- manipulate file formats with shell I/O and useful libraries ;
- geocode with the blink of an eye (or with your voice) ;
- make ASCII and emoji maps ;
- transform Atom into a supercharged geo IDE ;
- set up the perfect web mapping project environment in seconds ;
- and many more !
The CartoDB SQL APIs, along with the CartoDB Node client, SQL and PostGIS, plus a host of other open source libraries (GDAL, CSVKit, Yeoman...), will be showcased as the "survival kit" for the hurried but demanding mapper.
