Making Beautiful Maps: Geodata, Spatial Analysis, and Map Design

Skillshare Mapping Course

This 2-hour data visualization class is brought to you courtesy of Skillshare, and is taught by Jake Levitas, the research director at GAFFTA. This class will be taught Wednesday, October 5th, 6:00 – 8:00 pm at GAFFTA: 998 Market St., San Francisco.

At the end of this class, I hope to be able to produce an interactive North Oakland fruit tree map that shows real-time data about quantity of fruit available, public/private status of the fruit tree in question, and level of ripeness.

  1. What a great idea! I can’t wait to see what you come up with. Do you have any resources you can recommend as far as finding nuts, like maybe acorns? I’d like to go nut hunting with my toddler.

    • Hi Erin,

      I don’t have resources mapping locations of nuts, but it actually would be a good idea to include that information on the Forage Oakland map. Hopefully in the map making class next week, I can fashion capabilities that will allow this sort of information to be crowd-sourced. Are you specifically looking for this information as it pertains to North Oakland, or are you searching in other neighborhoods as well?

      Thanks for the suggestion!
