While map layers with different types of information are available, creating such layers currently requires substantial engineering effort and time. This disclosure describes the use of machine learning based clustering techniques for automatic generation of new layers in digital maps. Layers are automatically generated and can be inspected or corrected by human moderators. The layers include visualizations of aggregate geolocated data. The visualization can utilize generative AI for custom visuals. Layer creation is thus automated and faster, increasing the types of uses for digital maps. If the user permits, the automatically generated custom layers can include commerce-related layers or can be augmented by integrating the display of personalized advertisements and recommendations.
