GistMap is a service for publishing maps, with no backend infrastructure, just static files and public services. It works by downloading a configuration file from Gist, then fetching geojson/topojson from any CORS-enabled URL, and tabular data files from Google Spreadsheet, then rendering them in the browser. Here are some examples:

Creating a map

  • Prepare a Features file and a Data file

  • Create a Gist with a Configuration file named map.json

  • Take the ID of the Gist and create a URL in the following format to render the map in a browser:{id_of_gist}. You can embed this in another web page using an iframe:

    <iframe src="{id_of_gist}"
          width="400" height="215" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"
            marginheight="0" marginwidth="0"></iframe>
