tl;dr The Island
Yesterday, Mapbox hit 1,000,000 registered developers. WOW.
To celebrate they started the #1millionexploring hashtag on Twitter, which asks users to share their memories or milestones using Mapbox software. That got me thinking back to my first Mapbox project.
I had been hearing about TileMill online, and decided to take a crack at CartoCSS for the first time. Using my “Greetings from the Island” map I had recently (2013-ish) created I began the several hour process of scouring Tilemill docs and lots of googling.
“Greetings from the Island” - 2013
To my surprise yesterday, my original Tilemill project was still in my Mapbox account, so I brought it in to Studio to make a quick style from the raster tiles.
Take a trip back to 2013, Tilemill, and my first Mapbox map with The Island.
Congrats Mapbox! 👏 🚀 👏 🚀 👏 🚀 👏 🚀
