Re: Spatial data posting in HBase

HBase in Action goes through great depth of showing you how you could implement GIS information in HBase.

Unfortunately there are issues with Geohash and edge conditions which make it difficult to use when you're dealing with data on an edge of a quadrant.

A better way would be to create a point (geospatial point object) and store it in a single column.
(This goes beyond the example of what's in the book. ) And then index the data by tiles.
The downside is that you end up creating a lot more data…

Take a look at some of the stuff Boris Lublinsky published on InfoQ. There are also other articles on the net….
