20.2. Installing GeoMesa FileSystem¶
20.2.1. Installing from the Binary Distribution¶
GeoMesa FileSystem artifacts are available for download or can be built from source. The easiest way to get started is to download the most recent binary version (3.2.2) from GitHub.
Extract it somewhere convenient:
# download and unpackage the most recent distribution:
$ wget "https://github.com/locationtech/geomesa/releases/download/geomesa_2.11-$VERSION/geomesa-fs_2.11-$VERSION-bin.tar.gz"
$ tar xvf geomesa-fs_2.11-$VERSION-bin.tar.gz
$ cd geomesa-fs_2.11-$VERSION
bin/ conf/ dist/ docs/ examples/ lib/ LICENSE.txt logs/
20.2.2. Building from Source¶
GeoMesa FileSystem may also be built from source. For more information refer to Building from Source
in the developer manual, or to the
README.md file in the the source distribution.
The remainder of the instructions in this chapter assume the use of the binary GeoMesa
distribution. If you have built from source, the distribution is created in the
target directory of
More information about developing with GeoMesa may be found in the Developer Manual.
20.2.3. Setting up the FileSystem Command Line Tools¶
The FileSystem command line tools require Hadoop to run. If
HADOOP_HOME is defined, or
hadoop is available
on the path, the tools will use the local Hadoop installation. Otherwise, when first run they will prompt to download
the necessary JARs. Environment variables can be specified in
conf/*-env.sh and dependency versions can be
Note that you will need the proper Yarn/Hadoop environment configured if you would like to run a distributed ingest job.
If you are using a service such as Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR) or have a distribution of Apache Hadoop, Cloudera, or Hortonworks installed you can likely run something like this to configure hadoop for the tools:
# These will be specific to your Hadoop environment
After installing the tarball you should be able to run the
geomesa-fs command like this:
$ cd $GEOMESA_FS_HOME
The output should look like this:
INFO Usage: geomesa-fs [command] [command options]
20.2.4. Installing GeoMesa FileSystem in GeoServer¶
See GeoServer Versions to ensure that GeoServer is compatible with your GeoMesa version.
The FileSystem GeoServer plugin is bundled by default in the GeoMesa FS binary distribution. To install, extract
$GEOMESA_FS_HOME/dist/gs-plugins/geomesa-fs-gs-plugin_2.11-$VERSION-install.tar.gz into GeoServer’s
WEB-INF/lib directory. Note that this plugin contains a shaded JAR with Parquet 1.9.0
bundled. If you require a different version, modify the
pom.xml and build the GeoMesa FileSystem geoserver plugin
project from scratch with Maven.
This distribution does not include the Hadoop JARs; the following JARs should be copied from the
lib directory of
your Hadoop installations into GeoServer’s
(Note the versions may vary depending on your installation.)
You can use the bundled
$GEOMESA_FS_HOME/bin/install-dependencies.sh script to install these JARs.
The FileSystem data store requires the configuration file
core-site.xml to be on the classpath. This can
be accomplished by placing the file in
geoserver/WEB-INF/classes (you should make the directory if it
doesn’t exist). Utilizing a symbolic link will be useful here so any changes are reflected in GeoServer.
$ ln -s /path/to/core-site.xml /path/to/geoserver/WEB-INF/classes/core-site.xml
Restart GeoServer after the JARs are installed.
