finally, i'm finishing my master thesis on Geocluster, a Drupal 7 module that aims at enabling scalable maps with more than 1,000,000 items or nodes by clustering based on Geohash with MySQL or Apache Solr.
you can go ahead to the module page to check out the module and see if it fits your requirements
in addition, here's the link to the final draft of my master thesis on Geocluster

Hey, gang. While my site is in development, I'm using Google Maps for both geocoding and map display. But there are a few issues that might make that a poor choice for the production site:
Bixal is looking for Drupal developers talent (builders, themers and custom module developers) to work with us on a variety of project in the public, commercial and nonprofit sectors.
We are particularly interested in people with strong skills in mapping and data visualization, multilingual site development, and mobile solutions.
Hey locators and mappers,
I recently evaluated Leaflet for a Drupal 7 project and it took a little while to figure out the right recipe to get locations with geocoding and mapping. I've coalesced some of that setup and configuration research into a distribution. It's only a sandbox project but I thought it might be useful for others looking to evaluate a Drupal GIS stack that includes:Read more
At this point, I'm essentially working with a restaurant directory. I need to have (1) a map on each page (node) denoting the location of the restaurant, and (2) an overall map that features the locations from each restaurant (so a multi-node map). These locations will need to be read from a postal add
- I've been able to create this single map using OpenLayers, GeoField, and Geocoder. But I'd also like this map to have the ability to input a start address and give directions. So far I haven't been able to accomplish that.
I would like to make a view for one map. I guess the view will show certain types of content types.
based on my research & practice, I figured out it is easy to implement. However, I do now want to show them on actual map such as Google map view or Bing, Mapquest, etc.
I wish I can show locations on one layer (just State boundary; like shapefile). then users can click the loation(point) & it should connect to the node page.
I could not found the option in gmap, or openlayer module.
Does any one know how to do this? please give me some tips.

In immediate need of a Drupal 7, Views 3, and Open Layers module expert to help work on a fairly sophisticated site. Please respond with rates, links to relevant work, availability, and locale. We have a lot of Drupal work overall and looking to build our team, so a good outcome on this project is a great opportunity to join a growing team. That being said, preference is given to NY-based developers, but open to other candidates working remotely if they truly are a great fit for this project.
