Construction Monitor will no longer be skipping weeks for holidays (July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christmas), and instead publish whatever amount of permits are done. We are still giving our Data team's the flexibility to take time off that week above our usual limits, so expect smaller publications, and any permits collected in that time frame to come in the following week.
Power Search now features a radius geocode search. It uses the centerpoint of the given zipcode, to filter permits with known geocodes within that range.
Added a link to a system status page that can be used to monitor downtime and get status reports
We altered most powersearch parameters to trim extra whitespace (spaces and tabs primarly) off the end of inputs, this should resolve observed inconsistencies caused by copying + pasting data into the form. (Many copy operations will copy a tab or space after the word)
Finished updating old CSV files with the new fields where available. (Geocode data should go back all the way, solar data is largely only avaliable from 2017 onward
Fixed an issue with the API causing swimming pool subscriptions to not filter correctly
Resolved an issue causing saved search notifications to fail (as a result of the changes to powersearch as a whole)
Resolved an issue where Construction Types with commas were not correctly filtering.
Implemented new back end caching for powersearch, so that searches will not re-execute on each page, but instead when executing a search the entire 5000 result window will be cached. This mains when exporting the result, or going to other pages, the results will load without database interaction reducing load and improving performance.
