Spatial Vision partnered with the Climate Council to visualise the 14 million Australian residences in relation to their risk to extreme weather and effects of climate change.
Spatial Vision developed a cutting-edge Climate Risk Map able to be used by any Australian family to determine their vulnerability. The solution was built using Mapbox GL JS in conjunction with vector tiles to ensure a highly responsive application.
Mapbox GL JS enabled us to customise the user experience and tools of the application so that it was easy to use on both desktop and mobile devices as an embedded map on a web page. The key challenge with any web mapping application is to ensure it remains functional when embedded. Mapbox GL JS helps to ensure this is possible.
Mapbox offers free tiers for map loads and vector tile views reducing the total cost of the project. The application includes a template that users can complete to email the local politician within their electorate.
