Felt is the best way to make maps on the internet. As we face more frequent climate disasters, such as the fires burning in the west, or the unexpected snowstorms in the south, maps are increasingly a part of our lives. We refer to them daily, and yet it is still surprisingly hard to create and share a map ourselves. Felt was founded to make it easy for anyone to think in maps.
