I’ve been some time following Leaflet and this weekend I’ve decided to write some code on it. So as Leaflet has no tiled GeoJSON layer I’ve coded a layer to load points from POIProxy, draw them over the map and show a popup.
Of course it can be improved, at the moment only loads points at zoom level 16, the layers are exclusive to avoid overload and there are several bugs… but as a proof of concept, it’s not bad 😛
About Leaflet, I like several things. Its API is simple and lightweight and that’s the point, it’s incredibly fast on mobile devices. Apart from this, there are several interesting layers such as CartoDB that look promising 🙂
By the way I’ve uploaded a POIProxy demo that runs on desktop and mobile 🙂 and the code is at my Github
