My first big project with MarkLogic went live about a month back: AuthorMapper.

We loaded all Springer journal content (3m+ articles) into MarkLogic and used lib-search as a basis for a faceted search interface. Using Google’s geocoding service we store the long/lat coordinates of the authors enabling plotting the results on the Google map. The JavaScript framework Ext JS is used for the search form and some other nice UI tweaks like resizing the map.
