A few years ago we did a small internal project looking at the street trees in the area surrounding our office. The data that was collected was then presented using traditional cartographic techniques to produce a fairly standard looking pdf map.
No problem with that, we still produce these type of maps for client regularly. What I really wanted to do though is to explore adding some interactivity to the original data using modern webmapping libraries. I have been looking for an excuse to play with Turf, so inspired by a MapBox blog post from earlier this year I built a simple Leaflet map to allow users to find the street trees closest to them and well as explore each tree data point and the overall species distribution.
