VT Map Maker

Check out the Github Page for the project.

This tool takes google spreadsheets and returns a statewide map.

Possible inputs include towns, counties, or point data (addresses or coordinates).


Map View

  • Map
  • attribute table
  • browse other maps
  • link to create your own map
  • consumable on phone
  • sharability baked in

Landing Page

  • standard map view plus relevant introductory stuff
  • maybe greater emphasis on browsing existing maps?

Create a Map

  • enter spreadsheet URL
  • process data
    • sync to server
    • determine if town, county, or point data
      • load and parse data in browser? on server?
    • pick value to map
    • pick attributes to include in table (maybe v2)
  • edit map styling
  • publish at URL
  • login needed

Phase 2 Ideas

  • optionally add census data to attribute table
  • fork a map
