Where does the name come from? We have a great FM-station in Helsinki playing experimental music. One of their best DJ's took a name 'Soul Kitchen' for his program (he is a cook). So this is thanks to DJ Soppamies for inspiring me by music.
Where does the idea come from? Many people been asking me help for applying code ideas presented in
- marker data from a text file
- sorting by nearest location
- switching z-index of a marker
- two-way interactive sidebar
The series will use CSV text files as the data source because it been asked a lot. Still you can use any source:
- inline hardcoded
- Spreadsheets API
I already blogged a few methods how to generate CSV-formatted text files. Many of you have those files already from various sources.
When does it start? Just now, we start putting the CSV-data on maps. The first part is very simple: polyline from CSV.
