Pronounce Wisconsin Map Powered by Misspronouncer.com and Open Source

The Pronounce Wisconsin map is on both the Misspronouncer.com website (simpler version) and on the State Cartographers website (more interactive, GIS geek verson). You mouse over a place and the map speaks its name. Under the covers is the Google Maps API and a list of open source goodies:

Like the SCO’s other online apps, Pronounce Wisconsin is built using open source software. The backend is comprised of a Postgres/PostGIS database, as well as static GeoJSON files, while the front end relies heavily on CSS and Javascript, including Leaflet.js, jQuery, and jQuery UI. jQuery is used primarily for map control interaction, and jQuery UI is used for the autocomplete search functionality.

I pronounce it sweet!
