is there any way to create a LatLngBounds containing the markers from the search? Something similar of what we have any time we click on a category? It's kind of weird to see the whole world map in that way.
Of course there is a way. And as usual there is the fine balance between making everything perfect and living with the imperfect results.
If I was to modify hotspots to have the boundary of the search I would spend min 1 day doing this. And I guess it would be more in the area of 2-3 days. That is why it is now doing what it does. When the more important things are polished out I'll fix it. For now it will be hardcoded on the world coordinates.
