Through the course of projects, Mapstraction has been receiving attention .. more APIs and more features. The site has gotten a redesign too.
Features. There’s cross API support for “marker filters”, which will change visibility of markers depending on set criteria, like a time or numerical range, tag, etc. This is a concept I’ve developed with MultiMap, which supports it natively, and Mapstraction adds a subset of their functionality to the others. This is a really killer feature I think, something loads of developers implement repeatedly. The mapstraction filters demo demonstrates the use of filter for time based navigation.
Very shortly we may have more to announce too..
