    I read thru the Design leadership book a couple weeks ago. It's a good read. I definitely recommend the read. Thanks for putting this stuff together. Great work.

    You might look into KSS or Brad Frost's styleguide guide.

    There is a node implementation of KSS which works really nicely. KSS Node

    and the styleguide guide which is a jekyll solution.

    Edge case here... Depending on how you handle the URL and the purpose of your application, you could use the URL to serve map tiles within other applications.

    For example, I work on an app that allows you to color correct and stitch together multiple satellite images into a seamless basemap. The tile URL we provide (which updates on user input) can then be used as the basemap within other application such as mapbox.com or carto.com.

    I'm over simplifying of course, but that is the general idea.

    I would say that for the most part, the primary purpose a user would have for interacting with the URL within a mapping application is to share. You wouldn't want the everyday user to have to change parameters in the URL when they could just as easily do it in the UI.

    It's late right now, but if you have any questions about mapping applications in general, feel free to hit me up. I work with them every day.

    The app looks really nice. Love the interface design. One small recommendation: When scrolling through sidebars and the mouse lands within a number input, the scrolling stops and instead the input starts incrementing. This makes for some annoying undoing. Maybe only allow scrolling to increment when the input is focused.
