<web-map> Custom Element

The <web-map> Custom Element is a prototype implementation of the HTML-Map-Element specification.


The objective of this web component is to demonstrate the feasibility of modifying / upgrading / augmenting the <map> HTML element to support modern Web mapping requirements. As such, it relies on Map Markup Language which delivers map information as hypertext. This element depends on the MapML Leaflet Client javascript library.
