You can find more information on the speaker's site:

Using a simplified example of generating a network map overlaid with geographical information, the presentation shows a possible decomposition of the task into small manageable chunks and proceeds with implementing them, talking about gotchas along the way and how to solve them.

Highlights: obtaining free geoshapes on a country/continent level, selecting suitable projection, clipping shapes, introducing elements of interactivity to your SVGs, making maps look less cluttered.

Attended by: Salve J. Nilsen (‎sjn‎), Anatoliy Dmytriyev (‎tolid‎), Søren Lund (‎slu‎),
