We're now getting many more shapefiles loaded into the system, which is great. However, some are 10... 20.... 30... 50 MB files! This becomes crazy large to load on a single map. Also, pulling in all that geometry takes time in the back-end, so in general we must just better figure out what to do with this. Also, I've seen some crazy detailed files about very specific places (the type of paint used throughout the port of Barcelona, stuff like that). So we must also question what we need and what we don't need. The reference spaces table is growing by leaps and bounds which again is great but 100k items just to describe this single port seems excessive. So let's figure out how we best approach this.
