Is google maps the only option for a map on my site? How do I implement map hosting servers myself? How do I pull it together, so the user sees my own styled map?
If you came across these questions but were left without answers, we invite you to watch the videorecording of the latest Codelab ThinkLab series meeting, this time in the lightning talk format.
The idea for this was born after a few sleepless nights. First, I sat up to answer these and other questions about implementing maps in the React library. Then, with the help of the internet, a surveyor friend (thanks Barto!), and some dug-up tutorials (4th tab on Google), I finally got the whole process down.
In the video, I condense the most important information for you in a nutshell to save yourself time, nerves and money! You will also find a transcript of the Q&A session — thanks to all participants for the discussion.
Ps. Below, you will also find all the links I mention during the meeting.
About the author.
Software Engineer, Codelab
Hi, I’m Rysiu, and I write code for a living. I have been involved with IT for about 5 years since I started my studies. I’m a software engineer at Codelab, and I deal with issues related to Typescript language, mainly on the frontend side, but there are also other challenges, such as mobile applications and backend. After work, I try my hand at creating new start-ups, collecting music CDs and recently, I’ve been back to working on myself at the gym.
