Cannabist Map

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Note: This map on The Cannabist has since been replaced by an advertising initiative.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.
