Legends are important to the end user of a web map. It serves as a key to describing the various features on a web map or maps in general. In leaflet powered maps, different styles of legends can be added to the web map using HTML and CSS. There is also the legend control feature that comes with leaflet but in this demonstration, we will not be using that feature.
This example is styled as a vertical box style legend.
Immediately after the opening body tag, we create a div container for the legend and put
the legend contents in it. In this example, we will position the legend at the bottom right side of the map.
