Spreadsheet, web interface and story maps now done

Today was long and complicated but it seems to be working. I'm now producing JSON files for each row in the spreadsheet table, and I have an HTML representation of the spreadsheet which provides links to the maps from those story files. That puts us in a position to examine lots of real cases and see whether there are any flaws in our retrieval and processing, as well as to get a sense of the actual stories we're uncovering.

Spreadsheet now working

As far as I can tell, the spreadsheet is now doing what it's supposed to, after consultation with JSR and reworking. We will need only one spreadsheet rather than two. I'm now working on generating GeoJSON file for each row, so we can look at what we're generating and do human sanity checks.

First spreadsheet is now being generated

It lacks comparison title(s) pending decisions about how those should be selected, but it works! Took all day to get there. Lots of outstanding questions, but I think we're on the way.

Much progress on generating spreadsheets

Did a lot of work today on creating and testing output for specific lot/title combinations, as cell sequences, and rendering them into TSV. I've also re-worked the lot-based view a little to add precomputed values of all kinds that I need for the spreadsheet, and completed more functions that retrieve properties and titles according to various parameters. It's getting to a point where I can see what now needs to be done for the first target output spreadsheets, and I've sent a couple of questions to JSR regarding precise details of what's required, where the plan was a little vague.

Properties now mappable

I'm now creating individual JSON files for each property that has coordinates, and those are viewable on the map. I've created a list page for them, but also added the link property to the databases so you can get to them directly from there. I still need to add links from the feature to all the related title features, and vice versa, so you could navigate from one to the other.

Databases updated to use new adaptivedb features

After substantial updates to the AdaptiveDB code today (HTML5, support for auto-linked fields) I've updated the two live and two dev databases so that they now provide direct links to the Jenkins-built map pages for each title.

BreezeMap: data append is working, but feature geometries are broken

Got the new function for loading feature geometries while retaining the existing set working, which was very tricky, but I still have a problem with the geometries of the loaded features; they're defaulting to Zero Island, so I'm guessing they're somehow not being loaded at all. Still, half-way to supporting arbitrary collections of features on the same map.

CSV serialization done, along with currency conversions

Finally found usable versions of the 2018 data and manipulated it appropriately, adding documentation about exactly how and why the conversion code was constructed. Wrote and tested a bunch of functions for serializing data as CSV/TSV.

Some progress on functions; work on BreezeMap

Did more work on util functions for the process but realized that the primary requirement for development is to have more flexible maps that can combine different GeoJSON files together, so I've diverted into some dev work on BreezeMap.

Code framework in place

I've created the core set of files required to do the processing, and I've started writing some of the simpler functions we'll need. I have a function test module which I'll use to develop the function library; it's going to be essential to develop and test all the functions individually before we start chaining them together to create the monstrous output files, at which point it will be hard to see the wood for the trees. Found a lot of instances of substantial overlap (14%+) between lots which are supposed to be contiguous, so our threshold will have to be pretty high.
