May have found an alternative to having to use Google Maps to get interactivity.
comes from Spain.
I did a test, seems to work OK, had me a bit puzzled why the earthquake icons were split into two groups, then realized it was the Antimeridian, where
the Longitude changes from + to -
takes a bit of getting used to
can be done without using Google Messup (although this one does the Google Streets view because thats the way I saved it, too late to change)
Will have a play around with it, can't get the i-frame html to work in Wordpress, so at the moment you have to click the image to get it started.
(is for NZ Nov 23rd 2014)
early days yet, says it has a limit of 700 items, but also says it has a limit of 70,000 Lat/Long combinations, that's a bit ambiguous, needs
experimenting with to see what it can do.
Maps without the nasty corporates, great stuff!

I can even do it directly here on ATS, without the need for Wordpress

yeah is limited to 700 elements (icons or trace segements) just did a test using LDEO data, with the Plate Boundries in it, too many elements with the
fault segement 1588
So it has its limits.
But I still like it!
so ............. bye bye google mymaps
