Anti Flooding Maps
Northamptonshire County Council in the UK has used the Leaflet mapping library to create a series of interactive illustrations explaining how individuals and agencies can help reduce the impacts of flooding.
The council's Flood Prevention toolkit includes three interactive illustrations which help homeowners, businesses and communities learn about measures they can take to protect their property and land from the dangers of flooding. Each illustration includes a number of map markers which provide practical advice about steps that can be taken around the home, in the community and at work to lessen the impact of local flooding.
National Geographic has also recently begun to use the Leaflet mapping library to create interactive illustrations. These mapped illustrations include an examination of life in the Pacific Ocean and a depiction of a possible future Mars colony.
