An experiment with Open Data
TileMill - A quick tutorial on how to use TileMill with Open Data
I decided a few months ago to play with more open data sets. I went to the GO Open Data conference in May and that really got me excited about how we interact with data and use it. I thought "why not play with some new GIS software and see how it goes". With that in mind, I created a few maps and a video to help me remember how to use TileMill.
BTW: Yesterday, Github announced government.github.com which is a huge leap forward with regard to indexing and organizing open data sets. There is so much out there, now its a matter of trying to find good ways to use all of this information.
