On September 28, 2020, I presented at Maps for the Web. This was a workshop series created and hosted by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC).
Workshops’ Overall Goals
Bring together experts in:
- geographic standards and Web map data services,
- Web mapping client tools and applications, and
- Web platform standards and browser development
to explore the potential of maps for the Web.
Major Areas of Focus
- improving the usability and accessibility of maps
- encouraging the design of map-based experiences, and
- building easier ways for researchers to share content.
I served as a panelist with fellow W3C Accessibility Guidelines Working Group members David Fazio, and John Kirkwood. Our workshop was Web Maps for Cognitive Accessibility (COGA).
