The biggest difference between a printed map and a digital map is that the digital map provides interactivity for users. For example, with GIS software, users can click on a feature and identify its attributes to gain more details. The interactive design of the digital map helps every viewer to understand the map in an easy fashion and make the map even more fun!
All the skills about designing an interactive map can be learned from the latest released API lessons at Supergeo online courses. It is a free and interactive learning environment where you can directly modify code on the web page and see what happens immediately. Help us spread the power of interactive design!
