IreGaz: Large Data
How large is the database ?
A. Searching for Townlands / Towns / Islands
Your browser would take a long time to show on a single page
the full IreGaz dataset (over 65,000 rows, over 13 megaBytes of data).
So IreGaz shows a maximum of 1000 records on a page -
if you want to browse through a large result-set,
you can jump forwards (or backwards) through the result-set in leaps of various sizes,
using jump-buttons at the bottom of a page of results.
B. Other searches
If the checkboxes marked Townland, Town and Island are all unchecked:
(a) this sort of search on the full IreGaz dataset takes up to 3 or 4 seconds to process;
(b) your browser will in most cases have little problem with the amount of data in the result-set.
C. Make it snappy
By selecting a value from at least one of the lists (Civil Parish, County, etc)
you will reduce processing-time to a negligible amount.
You will quite possibly be able to view the results on a single page,
maybe even on a single screenful.
