In Detail

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.

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.
