Leaflet is a popular open-source JavaScript library used for building interactive maps on the web. It provides a lightweight and flexible solution for displaying and interacting with geographical data. Leaflet supports various map providers, including OpenStreetMap, Mapbox, and Google Maps, and offers a wide range of features such as zooming, panning, marker placement, and overlaying custom layers.

Compared to other mapping libraries like Google Maps API or Mapbox GL JS, Leaflet is known for its simplicity and ease of use. It has a smaller file size and fewer dependencies, making it a great choice for projects that require a lightweight mapping solution. Leaflet also has a large and active community, with a wide range of plugins and extensions available for extending its functionality.
