how many map tiles we generate per minute over

https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/open-test-of-map-tile-improvements/7833

Here’s a chart that shows how many map tiles we generate per minute over the last day (times are in EST). As shown here we’re generating up to about 3000 tiles per minute, or 50 tiles per second. We’re also entering a slower time of year, so during busy months and certainly during events, we render much more than that. For reference, across all iNaturalist and partner websites, the API, and tiles, we process about 15,000 requests per minute (250/sec) right now, which means map tiles represent about 20% of all traffic.

h has me wondering if we need colour to distinguish kingdoms? Why not instead use colour to indicate density from sold blue for single obs to solid red for the highest density, then it will be a heat map similar to this:
ing relatively small squares. in the case of the new test squares, since the squares are relatively large (the tradeoff for clickability and speed of processing), i think a color gradient approach will look bad. below are examples that may help to show what i mean. these examples are using 4px x 4px squares, which are smaller than 8px x 8px squares, but are already clouding up the map. (they use a different color gradient than your example, but they are using iNat data, though probably are scaled a little differently than the test

(compare the above examples to this: https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/observation-density/6305/6 1, which is a density map from GBIF using iNat data at very fine resolution – very beautiful, in my opinion, but very resource intensive to create and not clickable.)

Good to know that it existst but a bit hard to find…THis forum software is so weird. BlockquoteYou can also go to your profile and under Activity, click Replies: https://forum.inaturalist.org/u/oneanttofew/activity/replies
