Lights at Sea — A map of Lighthouses

This map shows all the blinking beacons from OpenStreetMap. More specifically, it asks the Overpass API for all elements with an seamark:light:sequence attribute, decodes these, and displays them as coloured circles on the map using Leaflet. It also tries to take the seamark:light:range and seamark:light:colour into account.

The cool part is that the size and colors of the dots are accurate, as are the blinking patterns.
