Lots of applications make bad tradeoffs, like running really quickly after startup but having a long startup time… and restarting often (see also, cold starts). Or doing unnecessary compression that’s overridden later or takes longer to compress than the comparative savings in transit. A lot of fancy optimizations do nothing, and some do worse.

Mentions Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF (COG), FlatGeoBuf, GeoJSON, GeoParquet, GeoTIFF, PMTiles, MBTiles, and titiler
