Subject Re: Spatial session at Apache: Big Data North America - Call for interest
Date Fri, 06 Nov 2015 15:58:06 GMT
Thanks George, I think that such session would be very welcome! In the
last ApacheConf meetings I got the feeling that some Apache projects
were starting work on geospatial data, but not all of them were aware of
existing standards and the risk of underestimating the challenges of
geospatial applications.

I do not know yet if I could attend to this ApacheConf (May 9th to 12 in
Vancouver), but if I have a chance for sure I will not miss the session!

  Several Apache projects are implementing geospatial functionalities and there is an opportunity
to discuss approaches.   One opportunity is to consider the use of open standards to increase
interoperability and code reuse.  Relevant standards include ISO 19115 for geospatial metadata.
OGC standards include Simple Features, coordinate reference systems and WKT, GeoSPARQL. coverages
and DGGS.
> Relevant projects include Accumulo, SIS, Marmotta, Solr, Tika, Magellan, NiFi, others.
