GIS professionals have many different options for building Web GIS applications. The user experience and expectations are different if you are tasked with building an application for the general public versus an application for someone in your organization. This session will look at several JavaScript applications and walk through development scenarios to help answer questions from how to move beyond trying to build an application that tries to do everything to building something that is targeted and communicates useful geographic information to the end user. How do you represent operational layers in the browser? How do you represent layers that change frequently? And how do you successfully do thematic mapping on the client?
