GeoBuilder for Exploring Geospatial Data

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

A step-by-step tutorial for GeoBuilder. The GeoBuilder tool provides a wizard type interface that guides users through several steps for loading, selecting, configuring and analyzing geo-referenced tabular data. As a result, the data is presented on an Open Street Map with customized annotation, station/site popup, and dynamic filtering and plotting. The tool can be used in two ways: first, an end user can use it to dynamically load and explore a csv file of interest. Second, a data owner can use it to build a customized view of the data he wants to share, save the configuration, and publish the data, configuration, and viewer as a new “tool” specifically for his data. With this, any scientist can easily develop an interactive web-enabled GIS interface to share their data within minutes, as compared to the past where they needed to hire a web developer and spent months to get the same done.

Note that My Geo Hub registration is required to access the GeoBuilder tool.
