Starting with how to create maps, you will learn about choosing your basemap and customizing it by adding various attributes such as zoom, start view, pop ups, and so on.
Once you have gained experience of creating your own map with Leaflet, you will move on to combining Leaflet with GeoJSON and adding geometry objects and features to your maps.
Finally, you will understand how Leaflet enables you to use Node.js, C#, and Python alongside its own library to efficiently create maps.
The text of this book is very user-friendly, taking the reader step by step through lines of code, articulating the goal as the example unfolds
While the coding examples in the text itself are incomplete, thus far, I have found that the downloadable code available from the publisher's web site does in fact run exactly as expected, producing the desired result
If you keep this in mind as you proceed, this book is a valuable addition to gaining a working understanding of Leaflet.js
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
