Leaflet is an open source JavaScript library used to build web mapping applications. Capital MetroRail is a hybrid rail system that serves the Greater Austin area. In this talk we'll use Leaflet JS to show the 32-mile route of Capital MetroRail, where it's stops are and we'll use Leaftlet JS to provide real time tracking of the all the active rail cars on the network. We'll then use Leaflet JS to show the full 154-miles of train track that that Capital Metro owns (despite not operating trains on all of it), the counties that those 154-miles of track run through and what the route looked like in the 1920's as captured by survey maps published by the Texas General Land Office (GLO).

Our journey will take us from client-side Javascript and server-side PHP to the CLI and the database.
