HTML5 and CSS3 for GIS Web Developers

In this course, we give you a first look at some of the exciting new features being promised by the new standard and how these might affect web developers in general and GIS web developers in particular. We ask what is HTML5? What can/should I be using now? How will it affect my HTML4-based web applications? Then we embark on a guided tour of the main features including semantic markup, the new audio/video tags and what will be deprecated. We also take an in-depth look the various APIs such as the Canvas API for drawing directly in the browser (no plugin required) and the Geolocation API for location awareness.

Can you believe the hype? Can you take advantage of some of these new features now without alienating your users with older browsers? Join us to find out!
