Model designs

  • Looks straight-forward
  • But can’t do models per type
  • So perhaps a bit of abstraction?
    • Entry Attribute Value method?
      • Needs multiple joins
    • Bitmap method uses limited columns
      • varchar01, bool01
      • Needs an in-database schema
      • Sorting can be an issue. Everyblock wrote a custom sort method
  • GeoDjango lets you do geographic queries against your models
  • Look up select_template method in Django
