…cluster because we want to avoid overwhelming the user with data. There are many ways to do this; Google Maps does it by just showing a portion of their overall data depending on your zoom level. The more you zoom in, the finer the detail gets until you see all the available annotations. We are going to take the clustering approach because it allows us to show off the amount of data we have while reducing the number of points on the map.

The final annotations will be represented as a circle …

…2 polygons that represent 2 zip code boundaries in San Francisco, CA and placed it on Google Maps.

The blue rectangle represents the Minimum Bounding Rectangle of Zip code "91102″ (I've used envelope() mysql function to obtain coordinates for the MBR). As we can see it covers both zip code 94103 and 94102. In this case if we have coordinates of a building in the city's "south of market" district ( ZIP 91103) and try to find a zip code it belongs …

Scenario: you get a new iMessage from someone. You don't have time to respond to it right now, but you don't wanna send a read receipt so you …
