Hi,

I'm building a very small app that allows my users to post content to a map.

The home screen of the app contains a map with all of the posts (as seen below).

PROBLEMS

01 - if a user posts a post from the same area, two pins will be on top of each other so you won't be able to access one of them

02 - if a lot of content is posted it will be hard to click on each pin

03 - when you zoom all the way out, there will be too many pins


Can anyone recommend trying anything else please?

Based on the zoom of the current screen, limit the numbers of pins you show on the screen. If multiple pins are to be placed on the same area, use a single pin and increment the numbers as you show in the screenshot. Zooming in can reveal the pins if they are far enough apart.

The other option, when the pins are right on top of each other, is to just show the number with a single pin and when the pin is clicked, throw up a dialog with the list of post from that pin..
