Launch: Web Map: QGIS Gallery

This web map shows the locations of all geotagged photos from the QGIS Flickr Group using the Leaflet web mapping API.

Javascript callback functions were employed to access the Flickr API, dynamically retrieving all of a the group's current photos where geotag = true, along with their thumbnail images and descriptive text. The data is retrieved in JSON format, processed by the script using for loops, and placed within the Leaflet web map as markers at each item's respective latitude and longitude position.

The application is rendered using HTML 5 and CSS.
