Update: If you don’t see the discount automatically, use discount code WKEARSE

So as long as you’ve had access to the Internet the past couple months you’ve heard of D3 and how people are using it for visualization in the browser. Well, if you’ve been watching from the outside wondering how to get started, you might have seen there is a book called, “Interactive Data Visualization for the Web, An Introduction to Designing with D3”. It’s in early release right now but that’s going to be a huge win for you if you haven’t bough it yet because O’Reilly has all their early release books half off this week. That means the eBook can be yours for about $10.

D3 is changing how we are sharing geospatial information in the browser, you should get this book if just to understand how it is being used.


This Weeks Hangout with Alyssa Wright of OpenGeo

This week I’ve got a great guest, Alyssa Wright of OpenGeo. Alyssa just gave a presentation at FedGeo about the new OpenGeo Enterprise Console which I’ve embedded below. We also will talk about what open means to OpenGeo (compare and contrast with Andrew Turner’s hangout) as well as why given that there are so many women in GIS, this is only the 3rd woman I’ve had on my hangout.

As always we go live Wednesday, March 6th at 11am MST. You can either tag tweets with the hashtag #hwjf or join the chat live.
