Who This Book Is For

If you are a web developer working with geospatial concepts and mapping APIs, and you want to learn Leaflet to create mapping solutions, this book is for you. You need to have a basic knowledge of working with JavaScript and performing web application development.

What You Will Learn

  • Incorporate Tile Layers and Web Mapping Services into your map
  • Write custom functions that use events to make interactive maps
  • Add GeoJSON data to a web map
  • Create your own images to use as markers on your map
  • Build desktop applications using C#
  • Make heatmaps and chloropleth maps
  • Take advantage of third-party plugins to enhance your map

In Detail

Starting with how to create maps, you will learn about choosing your basemap and customizing it by adding various attributes such as zoom, start view, pop ups, and so on.

Once you have gained experience of creating your own map with Leaflet, you will move on to combining Leaflet with GeoJSON and adding geometry objects and features to your maps.

Moving ahead, you will proceed to create custom markers using images and discover various plugins such as the Cluster Marker plugin, the Bouncing Marker, and the Animated Marker to animate and move markers. You will then explore the latest ESRI features available on Leaflet and make use of its updated JavaScript library.

Finally, you will understand how Leaflet enables you to use Node.js, C#, and Python alongside its own library to efficiently create maps.
