The Big Cheesy Map of France

The Ultimate Cheesy Map of France is a map of the cheeses produced in each department in France. Click on a location on the map and you can discover all you would ever want to know about all the different types of cheeses that are produced in the selected region of France.

The information window pop-ups include forward and back arrows, which enable you to scroll through each of the locally produced cheeses. Each of the listed cheeses include a link to that cheese's Wikipedia article.

If you want to know more about how the map was created you can read the How to Create a Map with Open Data guide on the OpenDataSoft blog. The guide includes information about how the custom map layer was created and how OpenDataSoft created the map-tiles from their designed map.
