17.4. Bigtable Command-Line Tools

The GeoMesa Bigtable distribution includes a set of command-line tools for feature management, ingest, export and debugging.

To install the tools, see Installing the Binary Distribution.

Once installed, the tools should be available through the command geomesa-bigtable:

$ geomesa-bigtable
INFO  Usage: geomesa-bigtable [command] [command options]

All Bigtable commands are described in the common tools chapter Command-Line Tools.

17.4.1. General Arguments

The Bigtable tools commands do not require connection arguments; instead they rely on an appropriate hbase-site.xml to be available on the classpath, as described in Installing the Binary Distribution.
