Since the new update this morning, i've been testing my develpment site out and I've come up with a few issues:
Any suggestions would be helpful,
Hi Chris, let me answer these issues one at a time.
1. I've investigated and it's unclear what's happening here. I'm going to forward this along to our team for analysis.
2. This download is failing due to a known issue with ArcGIS Server. We have a workaround in place in Open Data, it should be deployed early next week.
3. I believe this is a browser specific setting. However, I have an idea for how we could give you the option to right click and save as, when you are retreiving large downloads. I'll talk to the team about getting that implemented.
I'll keep you updated here with regards to the 2 bugs and the enhancement. Let me know if you have any other questions.
I think on #3, you're right. It is probably browser specific. I am using Firefox 34.0.5. I do get the save as option with Internet Explorer, and I do not have Chrome installed on my machine. I also have not tried Safari.
I spoke with Andrew Stauffer over the phone yesterday and I think on #3 it is because my OpenData site had not been upgraded to the Bootstrap version yet. I believe once I upgrade my site, this concern will be addressed with the new "My Activity" download menu.
Thanks again for looking into this,
We have resolved issue number 1. You should be able to download that file without any future problems.
We are still working on issue 2. The extremely high vertex count per feature is presenting some challenges in converting the data into a shapefile or kml extract. If these features were simplified, the issue would not liekely arise. We want people to be able to download original source data so we're going to keep at it and I'll let you know when there are any updates.
I have been observing an interesting issue with an Open Data portal, which is none of the issue reported by Christopher, but that is pretty baffling.
On a particular Open Data portal, I have found a dataset of Planning Applications. When I check the Table tab, it reports a total of 33,096 features. However, when I download the data, either as CSV or as a shapefile, the downloaded datasets have double that number of features, or 66192. Closer examination of the downloaded datasets shows that the features seem to have been duplicated.
Have you heard and / or are you aware of this issue happening? If so, is there anyway to fix it?
Many thanks in advance.
Many thanks for the link. As a matter of fact, it was Simon's site and the Planning Applications data set I was referring to. Interesting to find out that there are others, well, at least one more individual having the same issue.
Would be great to have a response from Esri on the issue, and how to resolve it.
I've fixed the dataset in question. We are having trouble reproducing this issue in our testing environment, but we are working on a fix nonetheless.
That is brilliant! Thank you very much for this.
Questions arise, is this caused by the size of the dataset in question? Or is it something else?
In any case, much appreciate the effort.
