SVG Mapping in Perl: Bag o' Tricks
You can find more information on the speaker's site:
- Abstract: http://www.tobez.org/presentations.html
- Talk: http://www.tobez.org/presentations/2013-NPW/NPW2013-SVG-Mapping-In-Perl.html
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.
