I was trying to look for the limits in each map type and couldn’t find it in the guides
As I work at Holidu, a vacation rentals metasearch, we have tons of geographical data we would like to use. However, I have faced limitations using zipcodes, lat/long and even custom map layers
Could anyone clarify what are the limits in each case?
So far I have faced the following:
show individual points for lat/long: maximum 5000? we would like to see how our vacation rentals concentrate and if you play around in our website you will see we have far more than 5000 :)
show total rentals in Germany by Zipcode: I had to a custom layer as unfortunately Looker only has data for US zipcodes. I used this beautiful TopoJson file available in Git. It worked perfectly on Explore mode, showing all the areas corresponding to the zipcodes, but not in the Look. I have deleted row limit, so it’s not because we have this.
We are now working with even more map layers (as we have our own definition of a vacational area for example) so I was wondering if someone could let me know better the limitations in each case and maybe workarounds.
