Map of Freebase users – updated

I made some updates to my Map of Freebase Users (see old post and Freebase topic)

  • Lots more user photos (using /common/topic/image rather than picture_s)
  • Does not randomize if map location is unqiue (Thanks Dannyman!)
  • Disabled clustering – it seemed to be a performance hit. It’s easy to make maps with 1000’s of markers so I may have to reconsider this.
  • Markers are added to the to map in a separate thread. GUI is more responsive
  • Built-in error reporting
  • Code is now valid xhtml


  • Use cursors to make data-loading more responsive. This should also fix the timeouts that Dan reported.
  • IE support (but only if somebody bugs me)
