The code snippet below allows you to add a ladybug (or any other image), to fly over a map. The coordinate boundaries are for the United States (min_lon, min_lat, max_lon, max_lat), but you can change them to suit your needs.
After a random number of seconds, the ladybug lands on the map. When the site visitor moves the mouse over the ladybug, she will fly to a different, random point on the map. This continues forever. The site visitor will tire of this long before the ladybug does.
This piece of code was named cartesian/optimize.js and included into page with a script tag. This allows you to quickly remove the code prior to deployment.
Recommended application … none. This is strictly for fun.
