Please help, because I really wanna use google maps, no
For several hundred markers, you can use small custom icons without
shadows. You will still have to have individual "click" event
listeners for every marker.
For several thousand markers, you can use CANVAS or SVG for standards
compliant browsers or VML for Internet Explorer. You will be able to
combine your separate "click" event listeners into a single "click"
event listener to service multiple markers.
Clustering of markers is another option. It is described in recent
posts by Luke (Google).
Because openlayers is open source, you may be able to adapt it to
google maps. The projections are similar. The Google TOS prevents
you from displaying Google tiles directly. Whatever you display over
Google tiles is OK if the trademark information remains visible.
can you post a link to an openlayers map with thousands of markers?
It would be interesting to compare it with a google map. What kind of
map server (or data source) was used with the 3000 markers openlayers
