Store, index, query, and transform spatio-temporal data
at scale in Accumulo, HBase, Cassandra, and Kafka


GeoMesa is an open source suite of tools that enables large-scale geospatial querying and analytics on distributed computing systems. GeoMesa provides spatio-temporal indexing on top of the Accumulo, HBase, Google Bigtable and Cassandra databases for massive storage of point, line, and polygon data. GeoMesa also provides near real time stream processing of spatio-temporal data by layering spatial semantics on top of Apache Kafka. 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.
