Marker Clustering support on Kendo UI Map
Add marker clustering support to the Kendo UI DataViz Map control.
If you are viewing a map with many markers nearby, they should group together so that the map is more pleasing to the eye.

This functionality already exists in the Telerik Silverlight Map control and it would be great to see similar functionality here.

Here's an example of what I want: http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#Map/Cluster

Hi,

Currently, to implement clustering, you could use an additional bubble layer and add text to the bubbles to represent the number of items available by using the approach in the how-to article:

https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/controls/diagrams-and-maps/map/how-to/add-shape-title 

Then, when the zoom reaches a certain level, you can hide the bubble layer and show the marker layer. To improve performance, load the markers for the visible area only:

https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/controls/diagrams-and-maps/map/how-to/load-markers-for-area

Kind Regards,

however the Leaflet example
https://github.com/Leaflet/Leaflet.markercluster/blob/master/example/map.png
is spot on if you can zoom in.

Will it work ok with Cordova, what should I look for in the app Market place?

Hi,

Is similar Cluster feature available with  kendo.dataviz.ui.Map Ajax UI? I didn't find any in Kendo-ui.

Please advise
Thanks

It is an essential functionality to speed up loading.

This would be very helpful.  Also good to support clustering categories.

I really really need this functionality. Unfortunately, I can't wait for it, so I'm going to have to implement some version of it myself. But I'm sure the official way you guys provide will end up being much cleaner.

I would also like this feature, we have alot of markers on our map that are close by each other and it would be beneficial to cluster them for better visualization.

Essential for good user experience.

I agree that it would be extremely useful for those cases with a sensible amount of markers.
