Please provide more information to your question, such as where the JSON is being requested from, the code used to request the JSON and similar..

Anyway, a neat trick with fetching resources is to append a random query to the request with javascript or even from a server side rendering process..

is not the same as:

and should make a new request since that data has never been cached.

An example using jQuery (stated in comments):

$.getJSON('/data/map.json?' + (new Date().getTime()), ...)

using the Date will also ensure you never request the same random number.

I'd suggest you try to fix the issue on the server side of things..
