About Webgeoda Scaffolding

What is this thing?

WebGeoDa is a set of tools, templates, and scaffolding to quickly and easily develop geospatial data dashboards. WebGeoDa builds on the GeoDa suite of geospatial software and extends jsGeoDa through accessible and ready-to-go examples.

What can WebGeoDa do?

WebGeoDa focuses on enabling exploratory data dashboards with complex data, the need for diverse variables, and high performance in-browser analytics. You can make maps with a variety of color-binning techniques and spatial statistical methods, like Hotspot cluster analysis, through a simple JSON based data and variable configuration.

What do I need to get started?

To get started with WebGeoDa, you'll need:

  • A Javascript package manager - Yarn or NPM

  • Degit, a package to copy Github repositories (or you can directly fork the WebGeoDa example repository)

  • A little bit of experience with HTML and JSON

  • Your code editor of choice

Don't worry, we'll walk through this in the Getting Started docs

WebGeoDa is based on Next.js and React, although we've worked to keep much of the syntax as familar to users of Vanilla Javascript, HTML, and CSS. The ecosystem of JavaScript frameworks has become a complex place, and this project serves as a scaffolding to make jumping in a little bit easier.

License and Ownership

GPL-3 (Gnu Public License)

This project is licensed under GPL-3, meaning you're free to use this for whatever you'd like! However, your project must be shared under the same license.


Very intentionally, WebGeoDa doens't require your data to be uploaded to an external server, and you control when and where your WebGeoDa dashboard exists. There is no proprietary service that you're connected to, and you can run this locally for your own purposes, on a personal webserver, or through a host of different deploying options.
