It was just a small idea but I haven’t slept much since it came to my mind to build a plugin fo QGIS. It should create a basic webmap from your current layers without coding and with popup functionality and changeable basemaps using leaflet. Meet my new daughter: qgis2leaf!
Okay let’s be honest: I don’t have any idea of what D3 is capable off (we got Ralf for this crazy rocket science) but what Geoawesomeness posted today about “how the Earth looks like” catched my interest as the video, which was shown in the post, presented a cool animation of different map projections.
The new JSON Format GeoJSON allows you to easily embed geographical features in your leaflet webmap. Additionally you can create it very easily in the open source GIS QGIS aka Quantum GIS. In this tutorial I’ll show you how to export features to GeoJSON from QGIS and embed them into your leaflet map.
In our first post we concentrated on the creation of a table in leaflet and simple ways to administer our data and to embed the map in a webpage. Today we will consume only the table with Leaflet.
