Map Club — Simple Maps with geojson.io

20160901_banner_fall_v1

Map Club spent last Friday’s session exploring geojson.io, a simple, open-source editor for map data. geojson.io seeks to be a quick tool for creating, viewing, and sharing maps. Compatible with a number of different data formats, the interface of the tool offers basic styling functionality, as well as enables Github users to turn any map into a shareable secret Gist for collaborative viewing and editing.

geojson.io proved especially useful for converting data into a web-ready format for integration into an external library, such as Mapbox or Leaflet.js. Thank you to everyone who attended, and look forward to seeing you next Friday!
