Book Description

Leaflet open source JavaScript library is a great alternative to GoogleMaps for creating dynamic and interactive maps. More importantly, it will enable you to layer your maps with data from a wide range of providers, or your own. Data on maps can take many forms – tiles, interactive markers, vector objects – and Leaflet handles them all.

Instant Interactive Map designs with Leaflet JavaScript Library How-to is written as a Cookbook, with straightforward recipes to help you harness the powerful features of the leading open source map library, from imagery to interactive vector objects on desktop and mobile browsers.

This book will help you learn how to create maps with the Leaflet JavaScript library through a series of step-by-step recipes to achieve great dynamic and interactive slippy maps.
You will also learn how to add dynamic responsive features to your maps through the use of tiles, WMS, GeoJSON, custom markers with popups, interactive vector objects, and standard controls, as well as custom ones. Furthermore, preparing to deploy on mobile and using the location of the device will be explained in detail.

Everything you need to know about Leaflet to create great maps, from a basic slippy map to a colorful, animated, interactive, choropleth map, will be explained in this book.
