A binary shapefile loader and canvas-based renderer, for javascript. Many caveats:
Seems best in Safari... times out in IE and in Firefox 3.5 with large files.
+Does the dumbest thing possible and reads entire shp and dbf files in one go..
Error checking is strange (needs testing with more known-good files).
Manually increments byte array offsets instead of being smart.
Implies that it's a good idea to load large binary files over the network.
-Doesn't do anything apart from proof of concept.
