We’ve been around too long without a blog. So here it is. Welcome to ThinkSpatial’s very own blog. We’ll be posting here every now and then with updates from the company, the awesome stuff we’re making, and any other cool things we find. Since this is the first real post it’s a good opportunity to show you what powers this site and how we made it.
There might be some bugs we’ve yet to squash, so bear with us while we get everything in its place.
Every bit of content is delivered from Markdown files in dropbox. This allows us to quickly update content without having to mess with any clunky content management systems.
There’s a little magic thrown in to handle transitioning between hero pages and displaying content, but Leaflet’s simplicity allowed us to quickly build a cool looking map we can fill with whatever spatial data we want.
