comment Adding an image instead of standard svg to Polymaps
I'm not sure I recall, but I suspect it is loading and paging new objects that were not visible. If you just draw all the objects offscreen you wouldn't have to worry about that. Polymaps is end of life, btw, you should probably switch to something newer like Leaflet.

comment How do various JavaScript mapping libraries compare?
Just an update on my answer; Polymaps hasn't had any development in a couple of years. It's still an interesting library with some unique abilities, but I wouldn't use it for a new project. These days I'm using Leaflet.

Not via the GeoLocation API, no. Also it doesn't provide GPS-specific information like satellite signal strength, etc.

comment Is there a good GPS track analysis library?
Google just announced a Tracks API I'm mentioning here for completeness. It looks useful but in a different direction than I'm looking for; more about breadcrumbs and geofences.
