Check out http://earth-base.org/fossils for my heat map implementation. I calculate the clusters in PL/R, and send the data to the browser as json and construct the heatmap in the browser.

I will clean up the PL/R code and publish it on my web site and post a notice on this list soon as I get some breathing time.
