Mandelbrot Set

The Mandelbrot set is a fractal set popular for its pleasing aesthetics and simple definition. Here we generate map tiles procedurally, visualizing points in the complex plane with HTML5 Canvas. As you can imagine, this approach suggests myriad possibilities both for computational visualization and post-processing of raster (image) tiles in the client.

var po = org.polymaps;

var map = po.map()
    .zoomRange([0, 20])
    .center({lat: 0, lon: 0})


Polymaps is a project from SimpleGeo and Stamen.
