Loading PLUTO into Carto

To load MapPLUTO into carto, the best approach is to upload the five borough shapefiles together, then UNION ALL them together.

  • Upload all five zipped borough shapefiles from Bytes of the Big Apple. Be sure to uncheck 'Allow Carto to guess column types" when uploading, or you'll get column type mismatches
  • UNION ALL the tables together with the following query. We can't just SELECT * because we'd have duplicate cartodb_ids in the result set, and saving as a new table would fail.
SELECT the_geom,the_geom_webmercator,borough,block,lot,cd,ct2010,cb2010,schooldist,council,zipcode,firecomp,policeprct,healthcent,healtharea,sanitboro,sanitdistr,sanitsub,address,zonedist1,zonedist2,zonedist3,zonedist4,overlay1,overlay2,spdist1,spdist2,spdist3,ltdheight,splitzone,bldgclass,landuse,easements,ownertype,ownername,lotarea,bldgarea,comarea,resarea,officearea,retailarea,garagearea,strgearea,factryarea,otherarea,areasource,numbldgs,numfloors,unitsres,unitstotal,lotfront,lotdepth,bldgfront,bldgdepth,ext,pro

You can already cancel ES6 Promises

The gist: by having a Promise adopt the state of a forever pending one, you can suspend its then handlers chain.

Promise.pending = Promise.race.bind(Promise, [])

let cancel

new Promise(function(fulfill, reject) {
  cancel = function() {fulfill(Promise.pending())}
  setTimeout(fulfill, 1000, 5)

Steps to get docker-cartodb working with a real domain

#Notes for getting docker-cartodb to run on a digitalocean droplet
As of 21 June 2016, the Dockerfile at sverhoeven/docker-cartodb is not up to date, and the build will fail. It seems to fail at step 39, when it goes to create a user, but was not able to update it to get it working. Hopefully someone else can get it going with the latest cartodb code.
However, running `docker run -d -p 3000:3000 -p 8080:8080 -p 8181:8181 sverhoeven/cartodb` will pull a complete docker image that is a few months old.
Running this image will get you a container that expects to run at the domain `cartodb.localhost`, and per the installation instructions you are told to update your hosts file to point cartodb.localhost to the IP of your docker host.
I wanted to run this with a real domain, so here are some notes on the steps involved.
- run the image using `docker run -d -p 3000:3000 -p 8080:8080 -p 8181:8181 sverhoeven/cartodb`
