Subject Re: Storing Geospatial Tiles in Accumulo Question
Date Wed, 27 Jun 2012 02:12:17 GMT

Recently had a discussion about a great geo "trick" for Accumulo. As you know Accumulo maintains
a sorted set of rows based on RowID, ColFam, ColQual. If you had data with LAT/LON values
and you interlace the digits (fake coods example: lat 203.5, lon 127.1 --> 210237.51),
it turns out that sorting keeps close points together in the table space. It only works for
points not tiles, but perhaps you may want some analytics on center points of tiles or perhaps
you want to efficiently index points of interest for structures or other features.
