How do a create and display data on a custom map


Looking for resources on mapping from Canvas. The Canvas part should be fairly straight forward. My questions is really how I can create a custom map and then project data onto the map.

I understand that there are standard maps with states post codes etc, but I looking at mapping a mine site, so there are no current maps available.



What about Google Maps or OpenStreetmap? You can always create your own map with D3 by drawing polygons or using image tiles.


Looking at the Google API at the moment. Would be great to get something that will work offline as well.



Thanks Andrey. Will have a good look at it. Hoping to get something up for the conference.
