Antipodes (MapboxGL)

antipodes

In 2013, I made an interactive antipode map (points on opposite sides of the Earth) using the Google Maps API. As I’m trying to make the leap from Google Maps/Mapbox JS to Mapbox GL JShere is my rehash of the same map. The only tangible difference between these two maps is that you can rotate this version (right-click and drag).

Some issues I have yet to solve:

  • I can’t seem to get the rotated maps’ labels to display correctly (i.e. right-side up and left to right). I would need to somehow change them to be rendered as a mirror image.
  • The second set of maps don’t render at all in Chrome, although they do while testing locally. This entire project seems to work in IE and Firefox. edit: this project now seems to work in Chrome.
