It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of Pinterest and their push to build a completely custom map experience. They just rolled out a small update to their website that takes advantage of the excellent Leaflet.markercluster plugin to show images of pinned places right on the map.

With a bit of customization using the iconCreateFunction, the markers pull in each pin’s image and cluster together elegantly at lower zoom levels. Get started on your own today with Mapbox.js and our growing plugins repository.
