Wish list / bugs (in order of importance)
- There's a bug in the Flickr call that fails to loads images if your map view spans the 180th meridian
- Some refinement needed in the zooming beaviour of clustered placemarks
- A place search, or at least the ability to link to defined views e.g. by country
- Design enhancements
