Database Mapping: OUR PROJECT
Today we’ll be doing both mobile reporting and building a database-driven map. We’ll use a few different tools to pull this off. I have linked to all of them, though for this assignment, the heavy lifting of hooking bits and pieces up is done already. This is entirely something you could do yourself for other projects.

These two are the bare minimum to get started (obviously, to do this on your own you’ll need a Google Docs account as well, but we’ll all share a spreadsheet):
Creating a custom map from a Google Spreadsheet
GPS Lat & Long converter

Then you’ll need a few different things to embed various content into the map:
Drop.io: to collect all the mobile reports, and to embed audio
As we decided in class, please set up your own Drop.io page in order to keep things separate and generate your own embed code

The Google Spreadsheet we’ll be working with is here (but you’ve all been invited as editors)

You can see the actual map as it progresses at: j-incubator.net/class_map.html

You are responsible for reporting and listing at least 15 additional points by next Wednesday. More than 15 gets you extra credit. We should have a *huge* map by then. It will be awesome.
