Huge GeoJSON Files

vdog5 2 years ago updated by NTripleOne 2 years ago 1

Work often with GeoJson files. Sometimes they're quite huge. Just tired to load a 120MB timezone file, and it took literally like 20 minutes (on the new MacBook pro with top cpu option, so nothing too slow). 

Surely the file could've been loaded directly into memory, and then processed.. if at all from there? Or even come visible/accessible in pieces?

Just seems kind of crazy.

I just loaded a 100~MB geojson file (55k lines, 97m chars) in 3126 and it loaded in 12~ seconds - and this is on a crappy office desktop far less powerful than your laptop. Of course, I'm on windows, so it could be an OSX build issue - or it could be an issue with OSX (or your laptop) itself.
