Stepping Stones

2006

This dynamic map was built on the Bing Maps API and provided an interactive map of places relevant to the Jewish faith. Planet Telex built this site for local non-profit group Stepping Stones. Custom icons were layered over a full featured Bing Map along with an interactive legend.

The most advanced feature was a custom location clustering algorithm that happened behind the scenes to keep the map from getting cluttered with too many icons in one place. Users were able to zoom in on a Star of David icon and watch it break apart into individual icons as the resolution increases.
