Tonight I’ll be at the March GeoDC meetup to talk about temporal map analysis and map hacking in the 4th dimension. I’ll show some examples of stories you can tell by combining time and other data and share some strategies for how you can make your own time maps on the web.

Jon Bowen will also be there showing off story maps, and Nate Smith from Development Seed will talk about how they’re using open data to give more context to current events.

Tonight’s meetup is at 7:00 pm at Stetsons. GeoDC is a monthly gathering of cartography and GIS folks from various fields who get together to talk maps. For updates, follow @geo_dc on Twitter and join the meetup group.
