Canvas Fun 2 - Map Lines


Here are some further adventures with HTML canvas. For this one, I was trying to recreate an Indiana Jones style map to give someone a brief overview of my travels. Again, I realize this is by no means groundbreaking in terms of its display or anything, but the fact it is all done through HTML gets me pretty excited. Anyway, have a look and tell me what you think. Version #1, version #2

(As for the last adventure with canvas, I think I've isolated some of the issues, so hopefully it should load up correctly now. So go ahead and give it another look too, if you like. )

Yikes, Version #2 gave me motion sickness and, I might be wrong on this, but you aren't still in D.C. are you?

Nice. I'd like to see this kind of a thing for all your travels in the US and abroad going back however far you want. And extra cool bonus points if you can show us the mode of travel with some GIF sprite or something (plane/bus/Scoot-Scoot at the leading point of the line)? Or how about a timescale letting us know when such and such trip happened. Just a few requests from the peanut gallery!

@Joey: I made it (both of them actually). Well, I stole the background images, of course, but I did all the coding myself. You are more than welcome to use it. Hit me up e-mail if you want to learn how to modify it to your liking.
