GeoMesa - Suite of tools for working with big geo-spatial data in a distributed fashion

  •        179

GeoMesa is an open-source, distributed, spatio-temporal database built on a number of distributed cloud data storage systems, including Accumulo, HBase, Cassandra, and Kafka. Leveraging a highly parallelized indexing strategy, GeoMesa aims to provide as much of the spatial querying and data manipulation to Accumulo as PostGIS does to Postgres.

Through GeoServer, GeoMesa facilitates integration with a wide range of existing mapping clients over standard OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) APIs and protocols such as WFS and WMS. GeoMesa supports Apache Spark for custom distributed geospatial analytics.

Through a geographical information server such as GeoServer, GeoMesa facilitates integration with a wide range of existing mapping clients by enabling access to its databases and streaming capabilities over standard OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) APIs and protocols such as WFS and WMS. These interfaces also let GeoMesa drive map user interfaces and serve up data for analytics such as queries, histograms, heat maps, and time series analyses.
