I am trying to build an interactive web map to display the results of my master's thesis. Basically, it is a shapefile of line segments that have each been assigned to 1 out of 8 categories. The category is contained in the shapefile's attribute table.
When a user clicks on a particular line segment, I would like a static part of the page, separate from the map, to be populated with information based on what category the line segment is in.
I know it is fairly easy to set up a map in MapBox or Carto where you can click on segments and a little bubble pops up with the data contained in the attribute table. However, the information I want to display would be in the form of a rather large HTML table (1 for each category) that would best be displayed in static portion on the page to the side of the map, rather than a pop up bubble.
But before I get too far into the weeds, does anybody know of a mapping platform that allows for this functionality? Or a way to do it that requires less custom coding?
I'm happy to put the work in, but would kick myself if I found out there was an easier way to do it afterwords.
