Make Sense of Your Big Data with GeoWave
2021-09-27, 09:00–13:00, Nemonte Nenquimo

Are you overwhelmed by a firehose of data and want to tap into its potential? This workshop could be exactly what's needed to overcome your Big Data crisis. This workshop will provide the introduction to GeoWave as well as interactively work through the full QuickStart Guide.

Don't forget to register before we run out of tickets!

GeoWave is a software library that connects the scalability of distributed computing frameworks and key/value stores with modern geospatial software to store, retrieve and analyze massive geospatial datasets.

Capabilities * Add multi-dimensional indexing capability to key/value stores * Add support for geographic objects and geospatial operators to key/value stores * Provide a GeoServer plugin to allow geospatial data from key/value stores to be shared and visualized via OGC standard services * Provide Spark and Map-Reduce connectors for distributed processing and analysis of geospatial data with out-of-the-box analytics * Provide Commandline Interface, Java and Python Programmatic APIs, and Service APIs

Basically, GeoWave bridges geospatial software with distributed computing systems to do for distributed key/value stores what PostGIS does for PostgreSQL.
