Popcorn Placemap
View README.md

This is a clone of Paul Ramsey's Placenames Map to give context to searches; a prototype of a popcorn.js for maps. It uses a few cobbled-together code samples. Function additions to the original script are commented in all-caps.

Objective

Make a map that lets you search for placenames, and then automates some research about what that name references via Wikipedia. For example, a search for "Cesar Chavez" will create a heatmap for places named after Cesar Chavez, as well as pull in some wikipedia details about that search string.

When disambiguation is necessary, it pulls the most relevant name and offers a link alternative to rectify errors. It also pulls in images and links! More info to be had in pramsey's "About" section for his map.
