odopoi uses a jQuery based AJAX marker manager for the smart bits (markers show popups when clicked, only markers in the visible area of the map are loaded, markers don't overlap, as you zoom in you see additional markers, etc). The XML used in the AJAX is in GPX format which makes it easy for other applications to interface with odopoi. There is also a caching mechanism to reduce the database load.
