She can’t handle anymore captain!

I suppose some research would have made me arrive at this conclusion sooner. Or just a larger dataset of marker. But now it hits!

The initial update to Google Maps API v2 went quickly. And the new support for map controls (interactive images and text that hovers over the map) makes it easier to make the map the dominant part of a page. But suddenly the initial loading of the map takes ages…

Some research reviled that the current limits to markers on the map is around 200 for version 1 and 150 for version 2. And I have somewhere in-between so I’m guessing that’s why it’s so slow. Well damned! Looks like I’ll have to be smart about what is being shown. Tricky when you plan to have random people make their own sets…

Annoying. But I suppose I’d have hit it sometime anyway. So I guess I’d be faced with the issue sometime anyway…
