Leaflet - a modern, lightweight JavaScript library for interactive maps by CloudMade
Leaflet is a modern, lightweight open-source JavaScript library for mobile-friendly interactive maps. It is developed by CloudMade to form the core of its next generation JavaScript API. Weighing just about 22kb of gzipped JS code, it still has all the features most developers ever need for online maps, while providing a fast, pleasant user experience.

It is built from the ground up to work efficiently and smoothly on both desktop and mobile platforms like iOS and Android, taking advantage of HTML5 and CSS3 on modern browsers. The focus is on usability, performance, small size, A-grade browser support, convention over configuration and an easy-to-use API. The OOP-based code of the library is designed to be modular, extensible and very easy to understand.
