The double.escape() function
The current version (0.1) produces only simple markers and pop-up labels on OpenStreetMap tiles. You will see I have been trying, without success, to use shramov's Google Maps plugins to provide a Google tiles option, but Google are notoriously tricky with access to their tiles.
Beyond that, here's more arguments I want to provide in version 0.2:
- map.width (simple but a lot of the time you just want it to fill the user's screen and switching from % to pixels is required; I just haven't got round to it yet!)
- map.source: get Google working, Bing, maybe also satellite images (yeah right)
- Add Boolean option to skip double.escape if text is already double.escaped
- Allow different marker colors (leafletjs.org has jpegs for the blue marker and its shadow so I will recolor the marker and store various colors on Github.
Then for v0.3 I'll think about choropleth maps.
I encourage anyone interested in this to join me and contribute so we can make a whole suite of simple R2JS visualization functions and get more number-crunchers making interactive outputs.
