For a MaptimeNYC meetup, I wanted to introduce the concept of pixel matching as a way to generate new ways of mapping data and as a result, representating geography. As a little workshop, participants are given a set of code examples to tweak and at the same time are introduced to P5.js and Leaflet.js.
The result of this workshop was a little static emoji making app that helps to summarize what participants might be able to do with their newly acquired knowledge.
