Hi everyone, newbie to CF here.

I am looking for some input on my idea on geocoded news and on how best implement and present it. V.1.0 can be seen on http://webkartet.no/wns/index.html.

The initial over popup is a little slow on my browsers.

Yes, I`ve tried to implement the idea with WorldKit, but loading the points into WK regrettably slows down when there are many of them. Wonder if there is any way to improve/fix this? I have moved the project to my site: http://dreamrefinery.com/blog/wp/?page_id=42

I have worked quite a bit on this the last couple of days and have come up with the first real version using the standard google map api. Check it out (http://www.dreamrefinery.com/projects/wns/v0_1/newsmap.php) and tell me what you think.

1. Do you get any errors?
2. Is the site slow or is the speed ok?
3. Do you have any problems displaying the markers?
4. How can the design be improved? Would a top-menu be better than a sidebar-menu?
5. Anyone know how to customize the marker-images (layers)?
