h3 - Hexagonal hierarchical geospatial indexing system

  •        214

H3 is a geospatial indexing system using a hexagonal grid that can be (approximately) subdivided into finer and finer hexagonal grids, combining the benefits of a hexagonal grid with S2's hierarchical subdivisions. Documentation is available at https://uber.github.io/h3/. Developer documentation in Markdown format is available under the dev-docs directory.

nyc-taxi-data - Import public NYC taxi and Uber trip data into PostgreSQL / PostGIS database, analyze with R

  •    R

This repo provides scripts to download, process, and analyze data for over 1.8 billion taxi and for-hire vehicle (Uber, Lyft, etc.) trips originating in New York City since 2009. The data is stored in a PostgreSQL database, and uses PostGIS for spatial calculations, in particular mapping latitude/longitude coordinates to census tracts. Most of the raw data comes from the NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission. The 2014 Uber data comes via FiveThirtyEight, who obtained it via a FOIL request. In August 2016, the TLC began providing for-hire vehicle trip records in addition to taxi trips.

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

  •    Scala

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.

uber-cli - 🚗Uber, at your fingertips

  •    Javascript

Clearly, I'm a lazy person (just look at what this tool does - it helps me figure out if I should order a car to pick me up and drive me to where I want to go). That being said, as a lazy person it pains me everytime open my phone, open the Uber app, type my destination, and see the estimated price, only for my inner, responsible, cost-cutting, fiduciary-self to end up taking the bus all the way home.

uber-tlc-foil-response - Uber trip data from a freedom of information request to NYC's Taxi & Limousine Commission

  •    

This directory contains data on over 4.5 million Uber pickups in New York City from April to September 2014, and 14.3 million more Uber pickups from January to June 2015. Trip-level data on 10 other for-hire vehicle (FHV) companies, as well as aggregated data for 329 FHV companies, is also included. All the files are as they were received on August 3, Sept. 15 and Sept. 22, 2015. FiveThirtyEight obtained the data from the NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC) by submitting a Freedom of Information Law request on July 20, 2015. The TLC has sent us the data in batches as it continues to review trip data Uber and other HFV companies have submitted to it. The TLC's correspondence with FiveThirtyEight is included in the files TLC_letter.pdf, TLC_letter2.pdf and TLC_letter3.pdf. TLC records requests can be made here.

UberCarAnimation - A demo app showing movement of car on map like in Uber.

  •    Java

A demo application which demonstrates movement of car on map developed after inspiration from Uber. The application uses Google Maps Api Key and Google Map Directions key. Get these api key on google developers console after enabling them for your project. Replace your google maps directions api key in strings.xml and google maps key in google_maps_api.xml. For convenience a TODO has been added there just follow them.


PostGIS - Spatial and Geographic objects for PostgreSQL

  •    C

PostGIS is a spatial database extender for PostgreSQL object-relational database. It adds support for geographic objects allowing location queries to be run in SQL. PostGIS adds extra types (geometry, geography, raster and others) to the PostgreSQL database. It also adds functions, operators, and index enhancements that apply to these spatial types.

magellan - Geo Spatial Data Analytics on Spark

  •    Scala

Magellan is a distributed execution engine for geospatial analytics on big data. It is implemented on top of Apache Spark and deeply leverages modern database techniques like efficient data layout, code generation and query optimization in order to optimize geospatial queries. The application developer writes standard sql or data frame queries to evaluate geometric expressions while the execution engine takes care of efficiently laying data out in memory during query processing, picking the right query plan, optimizing the query execution with cheap and efficient spatial indices while presenting a declarative abstraction to the developer.

Tile38 - Geospatial database, spatial index, and realtime geofence

  •    Go

Tile38 is a in-memory geolocation data store, spatial index, and realtime geofence. It supports a variety of object types including lat/lon points, bounding boxes, XYZ tiles, Geohashes, and GeoJSON. It supports spatial index with search methods such as Nearby, Within, and Intersects, Realtime geofencing through persistent sockets or webhooks and lot more.

rides-ios-sdk - Uber Rides iOS SDK (beta)

  •    Swift

This Swift library allows you to integrate the Uber Rides API into your iOS app.If you get compilation errors with CocoaPods, you may be using Swift 3.2 or no Swift at all in your main target. In that scenario, CocoaPods will set the swift version incorrectly. See issue. To fix this, click on your Pods project and select the UberRides target. Search for the Swift Language Version property, and change it to "Swift 4.0".

UnitySpriteShaders - An Uber Shader for rendering Sprites in Unity.

  •    HLSL

An Uber Shader for Unity specialised in rendering Alpha Blended objects like sprites. It has a ton of features and a nifty Shader GUI meaning its very easy to use. It's also modular so features you don't use don't impact performance at all. Because it supports all its feaures in a one pass Vertex lit mode it can be used on skeleon based animation or sprites with submeshes (eg Spine animations) whilst preserving soft alpha edges, this includeds per pixel effects like normal mapping and specular. Above shows single pass normal mapping, specular, emission and rim lighting on Unity's example robot sprite.

golimit - Golimit is Uber ringpop based distributed and decentralized rate limiter

  •    Go

Golimit is Uber ringpop based distributed and decentralized rate limiter. It is horizontally scalable and is based on shared nothing architecture. Every node in system is capable of handling read and writes of counters. It is designed to offer sub milliseconds latency to caller application. Recommended deployment topology is sidecar model. Every golimit node keeps local and global counter for api counter and local value is synchronized with other nodes on configurable periodic interval or at defined threshold. Http server provides http interface to increment counter against any arbitrary Key string. It also exposes admin api to manage global configurations.
