comment Convert Google Street View urls from OLD to NEW
Most important is the panoid variable and the camera angle information. The panoid stores the nearest available street view image and allows to always go back to the same image, even if it is no longer available on street view. The panoid is easy to identify in the above urls. More difficult is the camera information (the cbp varialbe in the old url). Without this info, the camera would just point in some random direction, but not in the direction that was recorded in the OLD url.

comment How to cluster Google Maps kml overlay
So what is a good server-side solution? Using simpleXML to load the kml and then output it as a (very big) array in the google maps javascript?

comment Connecting markers by following the roads in Google Maps
@underdark: The result would be polylines along the roads, highlighting the roads that have a high density of markers on them. Like a "heat map" for roads. @Mapperz: No. But the example is very nice, too. :)

comment Complexity restrictions for Google Maps kml
My kml file has about 3500 placemarks. I think I would notice if 1/3 of the markers were not showing. :)

comment Connecting markers by following the roads in Google Maps
I am not sure what you mean. It's a regular Google Map (v3) with mapTypeId google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP and an kml overlay.

comment Connecting markers by following the roads in Google Maps
The markers in the kml are random and not in order. I guess sorting them by proximity would be helpful. But I would also need some algorithm to cluster the points together first. Because I am not looking to connect all the dots. I just want to mark those roads that have a high density of markers along them.

comment How to cluster Google Maps kml overlay
I have about 3500 markers in the kml/kmz file. Wouldn't it be very memory consuming to load them into an javascript array? Also, I imagine it would take quite a while to load the markers.
