Geospatial Big Data

The Apache CouchDB project is a NoSQL database that enables users to store unstructured data with high availability and partition tolerance.

As an example of a geo big data problem, this presentation will show how to process and store the results of a large image classification in geojson format into CouchDB and the potential problems that can arise of

* Database availability
* Multiple data types
* Sharding of large geospatial data across multiple database nodes
* Querying geospatial data efficiently using complex polygons

Cloudant supports the Apache CouchDB project and recently donated code to enable clustering within CouchDB. This presentation will also include details on advanced GIS on top of NoSQL.
