From Paper Maps to the Web: A DIY Digital Maps Primer Leer versión en español Lire en Français I was invited to the National Library of Colombia’s 2nd Digital Book Week as a speaker and to give a workshop on digital mapping tools. Neatline.org Neatline is a lightweight, extensible framework for creating interactive editions of visual materials – maps, paintings, photographs, and anything else that can be captured as an image. Built as a plugin for Omeka, a collection-management framework developed by the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, Neatline adds a digital map-making environment that makes it easy to represent geospatial information as a collection of “records” plotted on a map, which can be bound together into interactive exhibits that tell stories and make arguments. Designed for scholars, archivists, journalists, and students, Neatline provides a flexible set of tools that can be adapted to fit the needs of a wide range of digital mapping projects. For documentation, head over to the project Wiki.If you found a bug or thought of a new feature, file a ticket on the issue tracker. Here are some examples of the kinds of projects that could be built (or have been built!) with Neatline:
JOSM/Guide Welcome to the JOSM guide. This guide is split across several tabs (above), starting with an introduction aimed at new users.

Can I legally share this map? Copyrights of maps. A map is worth a thousand words, every map lover knows that. Many of us share maps on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram and blogs like Geoaweosmeness write about them. But are we allowed to do that? Maps should be treaded like any other intellectual property or a piece of art. As a general rule, you can’t publish a map or an image which is not owned by you without the permission of the author or the owner, unless the image is covered by something like a Creative Commons license used by OpenStreetMap.
Map Maker Google Map Maker officially closed on March 31, 2017, and many of its features are being integrated into Google Maps. Since 2008, the Google Map Maker community has edited and moderated millions of features to improve the Google Maps experience. To make it easier for all Google Maps users to contribute changes to the map, we’ve started to graduate functionality from Map Maker to Google Maps on both desktop and mobile.
