With Geomesa and GeoWave two technologies based on Hadoop will be compared which are specialized in the efficient storage and retrieval of geotemporal data. Both technologies use Apache Accumulo as backend — a key-value store following the BigTable Design (PDF) — and GeoTools for handling geodata.

The revenue gained with Big Data solutions rose by 66% up to 73.5 billion euro world-wide and 59% up to 6.1 billion in Germany over the past year. One of the core technologies used is Hadoop which creates the base for a broad and rich eco-system containing distributed databases, data and graph processing libraries, query and workflow engines and much more. In one of our former blog posts, we have described how we use Hadoop for storing log messages. Since then, a lot has happened in the Hadoop universe and ecosystem. With the start of our new Big Data series, we want to cover those changes and show best practices in the Big Data world.
