Recreated the Scratch Map… from scratch 😑

I’ve always semi-maintained a scratch map, the sort of thing you see people post on social media occasionally of ‘countries visited’ most typically. Never inclined to succumb to using some rubbish ready for facebook tool, had maintained a basic one on my home page.

Take a look at: http://jdr.id.au/scratchmap

After a good night of work, I have rebuilt it from the ground up. I already had internally setup a SVG file to do this, based off the main used on wikipedia. It was just finding the best way to implement through a website. There aren’t many ideal options either but eventually found libraries to help zoom and pan an inline SVG. Can’t say my eventual implementation is perfect but it works, including on mobiles.

Eventually will duplicate and/or integrate it into this blog.
