We've all been there. You build an interactive map as part of your web solution. Your map looks and interacts like a charm in portrait mode on your smartphone and tablet. Now you rotate your device for a closer look at the map. Suddenly, you're stuck in the map and all swiping just interacts directly with the map. You can't scroll to any other content.
Introducing MapEscape, a small plugin that detects if your map is obscuring the entire screen and introduces a scrollable area so you can scroll your way through your webpage without interacting with the map.
MapEscape is written to work with both jQuery and Zepto, whatever your preference. At less than 1k minified, the plugin is lightweight and completely customisable.
