Leaflet Version of Oakland Development Map

I’m helping sub a coupe of classes for a friend at the GIS Education Center this month. He is teaching the Open-Source Web Mapping and I thought it would be a good opportunity to experiment with Leaflet. I’ve ported my OpenLayers 3 map of major real estate development projects happening in Oakland over to Leaflet. I found the Leaflet library to be more straight forward than OpenLayers 3 with some neat features supported with that native API — no digging around GitHub looking for a code to enable a layer control for example. I still want to post a tutorial at some point. You can find the project here.

Oakland Major Development Map

I just posted a project I’ve been playing around with showing all the major developments in Oakland based on the Planning Department’s list. I’ll post a tutorial in about the project in the next couple days.

Happy New Years!

My resolution is to work on this site with some consistency. I’m looking forward to a great 2015.
