Happy Friday and greetings from the bustling metropolis of Sao Paulo, where Andrés Ferrate and I recently presented at MundoGeo connect. You can check out my slides from yesterday’s session “The Future of Maps?” We had a great time meeting developers from Brazil, and had the chance to see some great Maps API sites.
While here, I published a screencast on the MarkerClusterer utility library, which helps you simplify your maps applications by clustering your markers into larger ones (by the way, the library was developed by my teammate Luke Mahe).
Also while here, Andrés and I held our Google Maps API Office Hours from the Sao Paulo office, where we talked about Epungo, Brazilian real estate site that has an interesting interface. We also discussed some of the topics from my talk on the future of mapping.
