A Circular Selection Tool for Google Maps

Mystery Incorporated has developed a circular selection tool for Google Maps that allows map users to define a circular area on a map to load all the markers in that area.

You can view the tool in action on the Cabi Trip Visualizer. To use the tool just press the '2' key. You can then use the circle tool to select CaBi stations on the map. Once you have selected your chosen stations a number of arrows are then drawn on the map to all the other stations in its network.

If you want to add a similar tool to your own maps you can view the tutorial at Circle Selection for Google Maps.

Really, how this should work is the same what the present marquee tool does now but because there are no corners (except infinite ones) the circle should drag away from the centre of where ever the mouse is clicked on the map and not just have the circle appear on the map randomly.

It should be a click to drag action.
