This blog post is adapted from an in-person workshop that I delivered at the University of Waterloo’s GIS Day in November of 2023.
What is Svelte?
In this tutorial, we will create a basic web map of Waterloo Ontario’s urban forest. This web app will display popups with information about each tree, and allow users to preform a simple buffer analysis to “estimate” the shade produced by each street tree. While this is not an accurate way of preforming shadow analysis on an urban forest, it demonstrates how to perform basic GIS analyses in a web browser.
The full tutorial, including setup, building the web map, and deploying it as a static site to GitHub Pages is available here. The Google Drive folder also includes the original slides from my GIS Day workshop.
