In this video, we learn how to integrate Leaflet.js maps in a Django application. We will learn:

1. How to plot markers from database data that's been dumped to JSON with Django's json_script template-filter.
2. How to dynamically add markers to a map on the map's click event
3. How to send coordinates to our Django server via AJAX requests and find the closest point to the give coordinates, using GeoPy and the geodesic function
4. How to draw a line between user location and the nearest station with Leaflet's PolyLine
5. How to display a popup on the Leaflet map
