Any traffic limitation for flowmap.blue?

Hi Ilya, thanks a lot for this geat vizualization tool. As I understand we can use our own data (Google sheet or CSV available at public URL) and create a map to be publically served from the flowmap.blue server which uses a "default" (your?) mapbox key to display the base map. If we embed the vizualization in our public website the traffic may rise significantly... So my question is: Is this the right way to publish highly attractive data (e.g. state statistics) or should we download and deploy the flowmap.blue tool on our own web servers and use our own mapbox key?

Hi Martin, thanks for asking, I appreciate that! Yes, by default Flowmap.blue uses my own Mapbox access token with which the views beyond 50K per month are paid. So if you expect high traffic, please, use your own Mapbox access token. You can specify it via the mapbox.accessToken property, check the template spreadsheet

OK, thank you for your quick reply.
