Custom Google Map

This is a prototype I built for IEEE to highlight how they can use Google Maps API v3 to make their text content more dynamic and visually appealing. All IEEE office locations have been plotted on a cleaned up map. Clicking the pins zooms to location and brings up the details for that location. Mobile Friendly. #mapping #dataViz #javascript

NJ Patch Sites - Mapped

I created this custom google map showing the geolocation of NJ sites because I found their existing state page lacking in that it requires users to know WHERE the patch site they are looking for is geographically located. My map lets you click a pin on a map to get to the site. #datavisualization #mapping
