Build your own interactive map

The Oxford Internet Institute have been playing around with their own Visualization Library which is out there as open source. One of the things I’ve been doing recently is building the back end to a customiser, which takes your data and preferences and gives you a nicely compiled version.

The back end is written in bespoke ColdFusion, but am in the process of moving it over to cfWheels – having a framework with good documentation really helps when there’s more than one person working on it!

Anyway, it’s now in Beta, so give it a shot – http://api.oii.ox.ac.uk/InteractiveVisBuilder/ – as always, any feedback greatly appreciated!
