nTendril - A Geospatial visual programming language (GeoVPL)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many years in the making, nTendril is a web-based visual programming language (VPL) for geographic information systems (GIS). Based principally on the TurfJS, MapboxJS, and Node-RED libraries, the software as a service (SaaS) allows for simple to very complex analyses through drag and drop interaction. The rapid iteration of geo-processing provides a fun means to teach and learn geospatial concepts and algorithms without a single line of code. The Gartrell Group uses nTendril for consulting as well as a standalone tool for clients to perform their own analyses. nTendril also aims to be the switchboard through which one may interconnect disparate data sources, services, and APIs, and capture process in a functional flowchart. In this presentation, expect to learn why and how nTendril was built as well as the variety of applications for which it may be used.
