14.4. Prepackaged Converter DefinitionsΒΆ

GeoMesa Tools distributions contain several prepackaged converters for common, publically available data sources listed below. These are bundled with the command-line tools in the GeoMesa binary distributions in individual directories in conf/sfts, which are included by the conf/reference.conf file.

These prepackaged converters can also be obtained in a JAR that can be placed on the classpath of your project. This JAR may be obtained via Maven or SBT by requesting the geomesa-tools_2.11 artifact with the data classifier. For example, for Maven add the following to your POM:

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.locationtech.geomesa</groupId>
    <artifactId>geomesa-tools_2.11</artifactId>
    <version>${geomesa.version}</version>
    <classifier>data</classifier>
</dependency>

Note

The examples in the sections below are often specific to the GeoMesa Accumulo distribution, but the general principle is the same for each distribution. Only the home variable and command-line tool name will differ depending on GeoMesa distribution.
