This week in mapping class we are making our own tiles in mapbox. My map shows tweets that have the word “bowie” as they come in.
This week in mapping we are creating a map that contains a full story. I chose to map recent statistics on death penalty laws worldwide.
This week in Everything is Physical we continued to work with leaflet.js. The assignment was to add at least one geoJSON layer and at least one marker or pop-up to a map. In addition we were to think about what relationship/story/correlation (or lack thereof) we are trying to show.
For today’s assignment I played around with the maps at Stamen. It took just a few minutes to get their basic map up and running, so I tried a few other things, which didn’t go as well.
