The Lab produces interactive maps based on the Leaflet library using JavaScript, R and Shiny. The maps are designed to allow users to interactively interrogate the data and also provide links to the raw data.

Discover the different geographic areas of Trafford and visualise all of our spatial datasets in one application. Use the geolocation facility (on supported devices with the user's permission) to see where you are and discover what is around you.


Create and edit map features in the form of lines, polygons, circles and markers and save the results. Load previously saved data and add to it, or use it in other applications such as Graphical Information Systems (GIS) software.
