After working for a while with the google maps api you inevitably find yourself with the same problem over and over again. How the hell do you manage a lot of markers and how do you prevent them from overlapping eachother?
Well to that end I googled a bit, thinking there'd be quite a few solutions for that problem by now. Unfortunately that's not so much the case. In fact, there's only a few marker managers out there and only a handfull are concerned with clusters.
I took one, ClusterMarker
No, the problem was that he recomputed all the markers over and over again. That was reaally heavy on a marker set with 500+ markers. So I decided to rewrite that script. And since I was going to rewrite it, I was doing it from scratch.
And so, I did.
