Examples of NMP student maps
In the Spring 2015 academic semester we piloted the MAP 672 course within a residential course on the UK campus. The objective of the course was to give students with no prior computer programming background the skill set needed to produce interactive, thematic maps using the Leaflet.js/Mapbox.js libraries and APIs. The following maps were produced as final projects by students within this course.
Step-by-Step is a community organization in Lexington focused on connecting young mothers (ages 14-24) to social services. Each service, divided into service categories, is dispalyed on the map and contains a pop-up and info panel displaying address, contact info, website, etc. This map will service Step-by-Step's managing team. The project began January 2015 and will continue development through summer 2015, based on the needs of Step-by-Step.

Services and Access: Modal Times in NE Lexington
This interactive map identifies services in Northeast Lexington and Modal Attributes associated with each service. Users are able to click anywhere on the map to place a marker. Then users can then click on a variety of visually categorized services to display an estimate of travel time (on foot, via bicycle, or automobile) from that service to the marker.
