Shelters in Aarhus

Embedded via Open Data Aarhus.

However it’s possible to download the json from the page: shelters.json. If you can import the json to Mapbox then … kaboom!

Mapbox cannot import the shelters.json file. Try to remove this line:

"crs": { "type": "name", "properties": { "name": "urn:ogc:def:crs:OGC:1.3:CRS84" } },

Save your file and bingo! Now you have a dataset.

  1. In mapbox import the file shelters.json
  2. Export the datalayer as a tile.
  3. In your map use the tile as a layer.
  4. That’s it.

Here’s thee result in the Mapbox studio:

Now you can embed the map in your CMS or on a web page. If you work in WordPress the next step could be a custom page or post with the image loading open data from Aarhus – or to create a plugin with a shortcode that will display your map. Follow the recipe here.

Here Open Street Maps is embedded via a simple i-frame – but it’s just a standard map. Not much Leaflet or Mapbox styling is possible when we use the OSM embed options. But at least you may add a marker via the OSM web page. As far as I can see the marker is made via Leaflet somehow.

Since the AUH is a behemoth building complex. But you can use the pointer in order to pinpoint an entrance or building.
