Travel Mapping and METAL: Maps and Map Data for Fun and Computer Science Education

Sunday, 11:30 AM – 20 min
Jim Teresco

The Travel Mapping project (http://travelmapping,net) uses data derived from OSM and other sources to allow travel enthusiasts to track their cumulative travels on major highways. The Map-Based Educational Tools for Algorithm Learning (METAL, project uses this data for educational purposes, including an extensive interactive algorithm visualization system. This session will demonstrate both sides of this project.
