Six years ago I started working on a complex, interactive mapping system called "Esteren Maps" for an RPG editing company called Studio Gate. The challenge was to create a dynamic, location based mapping system - similar to popular mapping systems like Google or Bing.

In this talk I'll cover the challenges of building a system, and how to build your own using Symfony, Doctrine, LeafletJS, and other tools - as well as best practices and hard learnings discovered over the six years of development.
