Atlas-Of-Thrones

An interactive "Game of Thrones" map powered by Leaflet, PostGIS, and Redis.

Visit https://atlasofthrones.com/ to explore the application.

Visit http://blog.patricktriest.com/game-of-thrones-map-node-postgres-redis/ for a tutorial on building the backend, using Node.js, PostGIS, and Redis.

Visit https://blog.patricktriest.com/game-of-thrones-leaflet-webpack/ for part II of the tutorial, which provides a detailed guide to building the frontend webapp using Webpack, Leaflet, and framework-less Javascript components.

Structure

  • app/ - The front-end web application source.
  • public/ - The compiled and minified front-end code.
  • server/ - The Node.js API server code.
  • data_augmentation/ - A collection of scripts to augment the shapefile data with summary data scraped from various wikis.
  • geojson_preview - A simple html page to preview geojson data on a map.

Setup

To setup the project, simply download or clone the project to your local machine and npm install.

You can find a SQL database dump here with all of the content pre-loaded and ready to be queried - https://cdn.patricktriest.com/atlas-of-thrones/atlas_of_thrones.sql

The only extra step is adding a .env file in order to properly initialize the required environment variables.

Here's an example .env file with sensible defaults for local development -

PORT=5000
DATABASE_URL=postgres://patrick@localhost:5432/atlas_of_thrones?ssl=false
REDIS_HOST=localhost
REDIS_PORT=6379
CORS_ORIGIN=http://localhost:8080

You'll need to change the username in the DATABASE_URL entry to match your PostgreSQL user credentials. Unless your name is "Patrick", that is, in which case it might already be fine.

Run npm run dev to start the API server on localhost:5000, and to build/watch/serve the frontend code from localhost:8080.


This app is 100% open-source, feel free to utilize the code however you would like.
