In this SDW Free Friday Tech Talk, Mecklenburg County (which is more or less made up by Charlotte, North Carolina) GIS Programmer Tobin Bradley talked to us about lots of fun stuff.

Tobin is the creator of the the Strategic Planning and Support division's open-source mapping tool, The Quality of Life Dashboard, a responsive, interactive map that uses HTML5, jQuery, Leaflet, and Google Charts.

The largest technology meetup group in Charlotte, NC got to hear about life inside a government GIS department, Tobin's thoughts on open data, and current trends and tools for web mapping and where things are headed in the future.
