CONTENTdm Community Insight Series: Best Practices for Using the Map-Based Browse Widget -- Thursday, July 20, 2017
This webinar will show you how to use the new CONTENTdm feature, map-based browse, which is a mobile-friendly discovery widget.

Correction:  During our CONTENTdm map-based browse webinar on July 20th, the question of using third party software useful in obtaining geographic coordinates for place names came up. We advised CONTENTdm users to consult the Google Maps Geocoding API, or OpenStreetMaps, or any other publicly available service. It was brought to our attention that the terms of use for the Google Maps API prohibit its use in conjunction with any display system except Google Maps.

We advise using OpenStreetMap; information may be found here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim

A list of several free JSON APIs for geocoding services may be found here: https://github.com/toddmotto/public-apis#geocoding
