*** update IV/2017: from comment below, check this great raster plug-in from Victor Veralde Gutiérrez too: https://github.com/IHCantabria/Leaflet.CanvasLayer.Field/ ***
I have got great, absolutely amazing joy today from my own open source experiment. In 2014, nearly 2 years ago, I have published on GitHub (gist) L.CanvasOverlay a small class to handle generic drawing on top of Leaflet, I was thinking let’s try to contribute back to the open source with this little snippet – I thought would be useful so I have added little description. Original blog post here: https://blog.sumbera.com/2014/04/20/leaflet-canvas/
After few months later I found it is used on http://windyty.com one of the best 2015 geo-visualization with huge popularity. It is a small part of this great app, but makes me feel so good like I am part of it, I am looking on something where is my small piece, small share…meaning of the effort, sense of publishing and open sourcing.
And today I have got echo it is used also in Marine National Facility here: http://www.cmar.csiro.au/data/underway.test/
This makes me so happy … and just came across this quote : “Revenue is a lagging indicator, usage is a leading indicator,” can’t remember, who just said that ? :)
I just want to thank you for your plugin. I think you’ll be pleased to know that I’m using it right now to build another Leaflet plugin (L.CanvasLayer.Field), extending your L.CanvasLayer to get a vector field animation, such as in windyty or earth.nullschool.net, but in an easy way for the user.
I will published it in github soon!
thanks for notice, Victor ! happy to hear this, let me know once you publish this on github, I am interested to look on it!
If you want to have a look at it, here it is the plugin: https://ihcantabria.github.io/Leaflet.CanvasLayer.Field/
It is still on beta so… ;)
Awesome ! great work, thank you for sharing this !
