jQuery Geo is an open-source, geospatial mapping jQuery plugin developed with the intention of making spatial web mapping significantly simpler than it may initially seem. jQuery Geo is a custom engine and not a wrapper for other APIs, such as Google Maps.
Please follow the project on Twitter for release notifications, links to new examples, and other geospatial stuff.
Please read the following sections for more information and examples, and thank you for considering us! If you have any questions feel free to ask the lead developer on Twitter.
Sample HTML to use while laying out your map page
This jQuery widget puts interactive maps into your page
The $.geo namespace has functions for transforming GeoJSON objects
This project takes pride in having easy-to-use, up-to-date documentation. Before any code is committed, these docs are updated with any public API changes and sometimes internal design decisions. The side effect is that the documenation may be ahead of the code at times. Also, any undocumented features you find in the source should be ignored or asked about.
jQuery Geo supports the following devices and browsers and may work in other un-tested environments.
