With Sheet Mapper, we showed you how to publish a live-updating, custom web map from a simple list of locations on a Google Sheet. While that solution is great for plotting a small number of points on a map, it does have limitations – and that’s why we’d like to show our community how to use a similar workflow that’s more reliable, scalable, and secure. Introducing Sheet Mapper Advanced a better solution for visualizing large and dynamic data sets like the global coronavirus epidemic or mass demonstrations across cities all over the world.

You'll learn to...

  • Add your data to a Google Sheet and publish it to a CSV file.
  • Use a Lamda function on AWS to retrieve data from a Google Sheet.
  • Use a d3.js library to load the cached CSV data to your map.
