Is it possible to show all results on the small maps, rather than just what's appearing on the current page?

Asked by Ethan Miller

Right now when I do a custom search (say, "Maine"), the little map that appears in the right-hand corner only shows those results that are on the current page. This was confusing to me, because I saw that there were 370 results, but only 16 on the map. Not until clicking "larger map" did I see all of them. Is it possible to either: a) add text specifying that this little map only shows what's on the page and making it more clear that the "larger map" will show all results; or b) (and think I prefer this one), show all results in the little map as well?

Showing all results in the little map is what I'd love to do, but it hurts the server, since effectively no pagination of results any more (it has to compute and ship the entire list). Still for searches less than a certain limit (say 1000) it would probably be ok, and for searches over that, that'll be one busy-looking little map and it might not bother people so much if it is sampled (could add text in that case)

Can you help with this problem?
