Leisure time calls for trying different Mapping tools. I created the same Map location and California fire data with three different tools. These are the results.
QGIS has a sad interface but not too complicated to work with as a beginner to create a basic map. I need to get into more tutorials and its documentation to see what else is capable of doing and how to be applied in my real world.
I wish I was able to scale the data for accessibility purposes, and probably it is possible with one more line of code.
If you need a quick and free Interactive map with not much customization Google MyMaps is the right one for you.
I tried to customize the base map style but google search said to get into API stuff and tbh I didn’t feel like it…yet, plus that means I would have to get in the Google Maps platform billing and … Nah.
I like how easy is to upload the data and to embed it on a website. I don’t like that the styling is too restricted.

Finally, Mapbox Studio. I like how intuitive the interface is and that there’s plenty of resources for beginners on the web.
I want to bring this map in GeoLayers to see how fun it can get. More on this later…
