    Does Kendo Map support topojson at all?

    Data like this:

    Hello,

    There's no built in support for TopoJSON in the Kendo UI Map, only GeoJSON.

    Please, file a request for this feature on our UserVoice portal if you have minute.
    This will help us gauge the overall interest and prioritize.

    Done.

    For my specific scenario I can use a 1.4MB geojson file, or a 70kb topojson file - and it's the exact same data in both files.

    Hi,

    That's a great improvement indeed. The arcs that TopoJSON uses in place of plain polygons are much more efficient.
    The request is already picking up votes and I'm sure we'll get to it sooner than later.

    Thank you for your time.
