Grouping Map Data
I created a map that groups members by similar locations depending on the zoom level so the data is easy to read.
This project had several requirements:
- Wordpress form for collecting member data including addresses
- Validate the addresses using Google map APIs
- Get Latitude and longitude based on the zip/postal code
- Cluster locations based on the zoom level
For this membership site the customer didn't want to display anyone's exact address so we find the center point of the
zip/postal code. Using the default google map tool, when you zoom out it is hard to read all the numbers. I used the
MarkerClusterer code to generate different clustering levels.
