New toys, no time to play

I came across some really neat new tools this week. Since I don’t have any time  to test them out right now (or in the foreseeable future…), I’ll at least post them here so I don’t forget to check them out later:

  • Chris Whong has made a Docker container running Carto. This should make running your own Carto instance a hell of a lot easier.
  • Riccardo Scalco came up with Textures.js, a  JavaScript library for SVG patterns that builds on D3.
  • And my favorite comes from Geoff Boeing, who wrote OSMnx, a python module for extracting street networks from OpenStreetMap and then do all kinds of smart stuff with them.
