Dutch Election Candidates on Google Maps
Tweede Kamerverkiezingen 2012 is a Google Map that displays the locations of all the candidates in the upcoming general election in the Netherlands (a few candidates who live abroad are not shown).
The map markers are categorised to show the political party of each candidate. Clicking on a marker opens an information window with a link to the selected candidate's details page. The map allows for zooming in on your location to find candidates nearby, as well as filtering by political party.
The map also uses the Overlapping Marker Spiderfier to solve the issue with overlapping markers.
