[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] managed to get all the BRCK data imported finally.. but not my geojson fails because its generating 3MB of data on the fly :(

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] whew loading 200 posts per request was actually pretty easy

[Vaibhav Bhawsar, Ushahidi] @Robbie converting to topojson will reduce the size but extra libs
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] nah.. its all point data..
[Vaibhav Bhawsar, Ushahidi] oh so it doesn't optimise when its point data?
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] I think the issue is less raw data, more than I'm generating it on the fly.
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] I guess topojson might still help a little ... but its designed for simplifying complex geojson geometries
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] plus I have no way to add that to our pipeline.
[Vaibhav Bhawsar, Ushahidi] ah got it
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] TBH I'm regretting a few design decisions now .. but I made them so it would remain doable to deploy the platform as an OSS user
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] ie. almost everything happens in the API, and thats a single app.. now multiple micro services.
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] s/now/not
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Long term w/ ushahidi cloud we might need to look at spinning up smaller services for specific jobs: ie. clustering geojson, caching, etc..
[Vaibhav Bhawsar, Ushahidi] ok i am not sure how the pipeline would work if you were to use topojson
[Vaibhav Bhawsar, Ushahidi] ya i have some inkling of that for generating stats too for hte visualisations..but for now i think we have enough

[Vaibhav Bhawsar, Ushahidi] did you get a chance to look at the wireframes i sent?
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] no I probably won't get to that till much late this week unfortunately.
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Deadlines for google partners are steam rolling everything else I need to do this week :(
[Vaibhav Bhawsar, Ushahidi] no problem..i'll just get started on the implementation this week..we can always work through any changes if needed
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] topojson is easiest with static data.. you just run it from the commandline and output to a file. The load that file instead of the original data.
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Awesome. That'd be amazing
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] I used topojson for the electorate boundaries on this:
[Vaibhav Bhawsar, Ushahidi] nice! noticed that boundaries load over that something you had to take care of on your own?
[Vaibhav Bhawsar, Ushahidi] nice interactions

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] I think the boundary loading is mostly just the load time :) theres still several MB of data even with those layers simplified a lot
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] geometries are BIG

[Imtiaz Ahmed] Hello Everyone,
[Imtiaz Ahmed] how can i check the uShahidi version?
[Imtiaz Ahmed] which version is this?
[Linda Kamau, Ushahidi] @ImtiazAhmedGuest ^
[Imtiaz Ahmed] Thanks Linda,
[Imtiaz Ahmed] which one is the latest version?
Jul 07 2015 05:41
[Linda Kamau, Ushahidi] thats the latest version
[Imtiaz Ahmed] which one?
[Imtiaz Ahmed] v2.7.4? is this the latest one?
Jul 07 2015 05:46
[Linda Kamau, Ushahidi] yes

[Nathaniel Manning, Ushahidi] @robbie @jess are their graphics for v3 architecture?
Jul 07 2015 16:03
[Nathaniel Manning, Ushahidi] awesome. what is the next google site to go live after brck?
[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] they're the best data set
[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] Fundacion
[Nathaniel Manning, Ushahidi] cool.
Jul 07 2015 19:57
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] @Nat no. I need to make some more architecture diagrams and others docs.. but it keeps falling down the to do list.
