SpatialHadoop: A MapReduce Framework for Spatial Data

SpatialHadoop is a MapReduce extension to Apache Hadoop designed specially to work with spatial data. The SpatialHadoop project is completely developed at University of Minnesota. Within one year of its release, it has been downloaded 80,000 times. Recently, it was acquired by Eclipse Foundation.

In this project, the researchers are planning to use the new version of SpatialHadoop, where they will incorporate GPUs in its core processing. They also plan to scale it up by using some early pruning techniques designed especially for spatial data.
