Too Many Markers! - API Google Карт

Despite the v3 JavaScript API's significant improvement to performance, naively plotting thousands of markers on a map can quickly lead to a degraded user experience. Too many markers on the map cause both visual overload and sluggish interaction with the map. To overcome this poor performance, the information displayed on the map needs to be simplified. One approach at simplification is to render markers on the server. Another useful optimization technique involves viewport marker management: restricting the markers rendered on the map into only those that exist within the viewable area. If you still want to display many markers on the map, consider creating a custom overlay that displays markers with minimal functionality. These varied approaches are outlined in the following sections:

Google Cube: Because you’re dying to play a game about Google Maps

Me too. Google has released its Google Cube game, to be played once and forgotten. It’s fun to play for novice gamers (see: me) or someone looking to kill some time, but at its core, it’s a promotional vehicle.

You must use your cursor to guide a little blue ball through a maze of city streets and mall hallways to reach predetermined locations. Snazzy Maps - Color Schemes for Google Maps.

It's as much a heat map as the colors on Taco Bell sauce packets are. Although the images appear to be heat related and the author refers to the brighter color as a 'warm glow', as far as I can tell these have nothing at all to do with heat - they are merely self-reported 'maps' of where on their bodies people felt differences after viewing words or images associated with different feelings. That really does need to be made more clear.

I know this is a science website, where most of the userbase knows not to make that assumption, but this story is clearly doing the rounds in popular media because it looks like the results of an emotion scanning machine, when really it's just the illustrated results of a survey.

That said, I hope that these releases will serve as inspiration for you to make some things of your own. If you do end up building something interesting, please let me know.
