Geospatial Data

From hours to seconds: Multi-dimensional indexing with GeoWave and HBase

Participants in this workshop will learn how to use GeoWave’s multidimensional indexing capabilities to preserve spatial and spatial-temporal locality in a distributed key value store. Each participant will set up a test cluster on his or her own machine using the GeoWave RPMs and Docker. We will then use the GeoWave command line functionality to ingest and analyze both vector and raster data. The participants will also use our GeoWave Geoserver plugins to render their data.
