Clustering on a map
The map-clustering groups together a set of features (most of the time routes) on a map and shows only one symbol or square for the whole set.
There are two main reasons why we do this:
- Otherwiste your map view gets cluttered/overloaded
- If we would send all the data available, your browser would flip or it would take a very long time before you get all the results in
Here is an example where we use it on the Route Search:
In this case, the area of the map shows a large number of routes, but only a few are shown on the map and on the list.
You can see more in the following way
- Click on the (+)-symbol at the top of the list (repeat)
- Zoom in on an area
The cluster is represented by a grey-square. Only one route is shown per cluster as default. In this case, it is the route with the best score.
