Loxcel Web Services are an online map creation team who specialise in helping to create scalable maps.

Loxcel have two great demo maps featuring their own marker clustering system. The World-Wide Starbucks Map shows the location of 19,000 Starbucks cafes across the world. The Canadian Cell Tower map uses the same marker clustering solution to display the location of 16,000 cell towers.

Both maps use two backend services: Loxcel Web Services to manage and cluster the map markers and Google Fusion Tables to populate the information windows. The marker clustering system allows both maps to effortlessly handle and display a huge amount of data, providing a seamless experience for the end-user.
