Terra Populus’ Architecture for Integrated Big Geospatial Data
Track: Research & Sciences
Authors: David Haynes
Big geospatial data is an emerging area of big data and has unique challenges not found within the larger big data community. Geospatial big data poses two unique challenges: 1) raster and vector data structures and analyses have evolved on separate paths for the last twenty years and researchers require new tools to promote data integration; and 2) data providers offer few customizable geospatial services allowing researchers to integrate, analyze, and explore rich geospatial repositories.
