The New York Rat Map
The NYC Rat Map is a Leaflet.js powered map showing the latest reports of rat sightings in New York City. The map shows the locations of all rat sightings in the city since 4/5/2014. If you select a marker on the map you can view details about the date of the sighting, the environment of the sighting and the exact address.
The NYC Rat Map uses Dave Leaver's Marker Clusterering plug-in for Leaflet. The plug-in creates numbered markers for clusters of near-by markers. If you click on a numbered marker the map will zoom in to reveal the separate markers for each rat sighting.
