Some of may be familiar with illustreets and its beginnings as a prototype web mapping app (built originally with Meteor 0.4x - sounds like prehistory!). illustreets has grown into a full-blown SaaS in recent years, happily running its front facing service on modern Meteor, and powering location intelligence projects on several continents.
Courtesy of Xploria, our data consultancy, we relaunched our free service for researching locations across the UK as Open Xploria. Has a lot of information on demographics, crime, green spaces, broadband, and much more. Give it a try, even if only to see what kind of stuff one can build with Meteor. The app has some interesting functionality for cross-filtering areas, changing themes, and estimating travel time, for instance, which you can quickly read about in the how to.
If you live in the UK, and planning to move house, or are just curious about your area, you might find it even more useful.
A huge thank you to Meteor and the Meteor community which have made our software possible!
