Category: Coding Blog Entries

Mostly about my attempts to learn to code. Here I discuss my progress, and any barriers I’ve had to overcome, as well as my thoughts on the learning process.

Small Map Update

Posted on

I’ve just published two small changes to my interactive map project. The changes came from an email I received from a Christopher Wadey who had come across my map while researching for his own project. Search Christopher’s first suggestion, or rather question to see if it was possible, was a search feature. I hadn’t thought […]

Warhammer 40K Map Update

A large amount of time has passed since my last update, but I have an updated to my interactive Warhammer 40K Map. I worked on the project for several months after my last blog entry, but I began to become disheartened with the sheer amount of data entry I had been doing. I hadn’t really […]

Warhammer 40K Map Progress

map markers with clustering

It’s been a while since I posted any progress with my interactive map. I’ve been adjusting it every now and again since my last post in February last year but those changes were mostly to planet locations, adding in new areas etc. I hadn’t made any particular progress in the appearance of the map other […]

Warhammer 40,000 Map using Leaflet

Posted on

For the past two weeks or so I’ve been working on a new version of my interactive Warhammer 40,000 map. I wanted to improve the performance of the map, as well as add more features to it so that it could fit my original idea of showing the progress of the Horus Heresy. My original […]

It’s been a while since I posted, and I feel bad about that as I’d been doing really well to blog once a month. Unfortunately my new job meant I was so exhausted all the time! I’d get up at 6am every day then catch two buses to work (one of which was usually late […]

Well, I have no idea what I was doing half of the time, but I have a working prototype of an interactive map. Now, a map where you see all the areas and planets wasn’t the end goal for this project, but it does serve as a good base to build upon. I did end […]

Interactive Map Project – Planet List

Posted on

So, from last week I’ve managed to do naff all coding other than minor tweaks to what I already have. I’ve not been idle on the project, however. I’ve been making a list of all the planets, areas and features that I can and positioning them on an image. I’ve then been getting the coordinates […]

Interactive Map Project – Experiments

Posted on

So I started Googling for interactive maps and how to code them today. I think within about 4 links I’d found a fiddle that gives me the starting blocks for making the map and have it so you can drag and move around. https://jsfiddle.net/mekwall/zd5TJ/embed/ I immediately made a JSFiddle account so I could fiddle with […]

Interactive Map Project – Idea

Posted on

In one of my frequent failing to sleep moments the other night, I revisited an idea I’d had a while ago about making an interactive map to show the progress of historical events. I came up with the idea having read the latest Horus Heresy novel and realising that it was just so complex I […]

Data Analysis Course Week 4 (Part 3)

Posted on

I’ve been having a fair bit of trouble with this week’s part of the course. I asked if anyone had any tips and encountered a few others on the course who are also struggling. The general advice is to just copy the notebook and change the bits that are necessary. This is fine – and […]
