Page: Horus Heresy Map Project

Posted on

In 2016 I was reading the latest book in the Horus Heresy series, struggling to work out where each group was in the galaxy. From this I had an idea to create a map that would show the passage of time and the movements of these groups. Read on to find out how this project developed.

Blog post: 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Blog post: 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 […]
