GIS Tools for Hadoop by Esri

Interesting project, GIS Tools for Hadoop:

GIS Tools for Hadoop is an open source toolkit intended for Big Spatial Data Analytics. The toolkit provides different libraries:

  • Esri Geometry API for Java: A generic geometry library, can be used to extend Hadoop core with vector geometry types and operations, and enables developers to build MapReduce applications for spatial data.
  • Spatial Framework for Hadoop: Extends Hive and is based on the Esri Geometry API, to enable Hive Query Language users to leverage a set of analytical functions and geometry types. In addition to some utilities for JSON used in ArcGIS.
  • Geoprocessing Tools for Hadoop: Contains a set of ready to use ArcGIS Geoprocessing tools, based on the Esri Geometry API and Spatial Framework for Hadoop. Developers can download the source code of the tools and customize it; they can also create new tools and contribute it to the open source project. Through these tools ArcGIS users can move their spatial data and execute a pre-defined workflow inside Hadoop.

I recently learned about GeoJSON — JSON Geometry and Feature Description, but the two don’t seem to be related.
