Modify Advanced Search to facilitate map browsing

There are some real estate sites (e.g. www.collierscanada.com/en/Properties ) which have both a map and search results, but their map shows ALL of the properties while the search results are still limited to multiple pages of results. This is an intuitive way of checking whether there are properties in your desired search area.

Intellectual Property's advanced search currently has a map that only displays the current page of results, which leads some users to think there aren't any other listings.

Have you thought about having the map decoupled from the paged results?

Showing all results on a map would likely crash the browser-- Google recommends not showing more than 100 markers, since they each use memory.

Thanks

I had posted a while back about using marker clustering. I have successfully modified IP to use that. ( www.icrcommercial.com/sales-leasing ) I also tried modifying it to display all of our properties—this does cause script timeout in FireFox but I am wondering if that's because it's also trying to load all of the listings below the map at the same time.
Any thoughts on that?

Nice work-- I'd done a marker cluster version of the adv search map some time ago as well.

To really work well, it would take significant customization. I think you'd want to do two queries, one with a minimal data set, just lat / lng and prop id for the clusters, then a more "full" data set returned to populate the results area and the listing markers. I assume it's running into issues trying to pull the whole database into one browser session via ajax request-- depending on the size of the site, that can be a huge amount of data.

I have now successfully modified IP to have all results on map while the listed results are paginated. I also managed to do it so that future upgrades should not break it. :)

Great Job! I just saw this post. Quick question, If you don't mind what did you do to get this work, also, how can get the google map to show my custom pins versus the house icon. This is a commercial site and I'd like to use our custom pins. I appreciate the feedback!
