I built a map of Colorado recreational and medical marijuana facilities for The Denver Post under a tight deadline in the course of three weeks.
This project involved:
- Building a back-end interface for medical marijuana facilities, which was provided by a third-party API.
- Also providing a means for hand-input map locations.
- Using leaflet.js to publish the map.
- Building functionality to allow for a variety of permalinks: Specific facilities, cities, and zip codes can all be linked to.
Note: This map on The Cannabist has since been replaced by an advertising initiative. The map as it existed is preserved here.
