Importing and Managing Tables
The MapLarge API allows authorized users to import data files to an account using HTTP requests. The created tables are managed through requests that include setting up auto imports, listing table meta data, deleting, and exporting. Every imported table has a version, but subsequent versions are only created when new tables are imported with existing table names. By default, the most recently imported version is set as the active table.
Table Versions: Every time a table is created it is given a version, example: 635561654609964665. Most tables have only one version and are the active table.
When a new table is imported with the same name as an existing table, a new version of the table is created. Timestamps are used for each version. By default, the most recent table version is set as the active version.
Active Table: Only one version of a table can be set to active. When there are multiple versions of a table, the most recent version defaults to active unless otherwise specified. Using the short name of a table: account/tablename, will always return the active table. To request a specific version of a table, the long table name must be used: account/tablename/version
