Development Notes

  1. Download shapefiles from KOSTAT

  2. Convert shapefiles to GeoJSON and TopoJSON

    ogr2ogr -f geojson [geojson_file] [shapefile_file] topojson -p -o [topojson_file] -- [geojson_file]

  3. Simplify GeoJSON and TopoJSON using MapShaper

    • Municipalities: Visvalingam/weighted area, 5%
    • Submunicipalities: Visvalingam/weighted area, 1%
