EDIT: this map was once boringly called “Point Recorder” but is now called CinnaMap.
One of my coworkers is famously obsessed with cinnamon buns and I thought it would be fairly simple to set up a map on which to log cinnamon bun ratings.
- Add points
- Attribute points
- Save points
- No onsite server
I’m sure there is a solution out there that will do this, but after a while of searching and finding a few options that didn’t quite fit my needs (like, say, Fulcrum or ArcGIS Online), I bit the bullet and made my own.
The APIs I used are Google Maps API (the map), Firebase (the database-type thing), and Maptiks (analytics). As my expectations for this map going viral are low, I should be well within the usage limits for free access to each.
To add a point: start editing (checkbox at bottom-right), click where you want to add a point, and fill out the data prompts. That’s it. Have fun. Feel free to add as many points as your heart desires.
