Javascript-based Tiling Map Prototype

This is a rough prototype of a method of quantizing data for rapid display within a web browser.

In a full implementation of this technique, many small map images would be generated in parallel for display and browsing by users. This approach should outperform an approach based around the generation of a single large map image in most situations.
