Thank you so much for this!
The GeoJSON file is approximately 16MB which is quite large. As I understand it, the KOSTAT license allows us to remix the GeoJSON file as we need. So I propose that we simplify the geometry to make the file size smaller and faster to render.
The easiest way to simplify the data is to import the GeoJSON file into the Mapshaper.org webpage. Then use the Simplify tool and drag the slider to a reasonable level. I've found that 10% is often sufficient while keeping most of the boundary shape. Then use the Export feature on the webpage to export it to GeoJSON. Add
Let me know if you have questions.
I made a small change to your geojson file to reduce coordinate precision to 6 decimal places. I also prettified the geojson file which makes it easier to read in the repo. The geojson file will be automatically minified during deployment.
@thomasneirynck would you give this a review as well?
