ArcGIS, Spark & MemSQL Integration

This is a guest post by Mansour Raad of Esri. We were fortunate to catch up with him at Strata+Hadoop World San Jose. This post is replicated from Mansour’s Thunderhead Explorer blog ArcGIS, Spark & MemSQL Integration Just got back from the fantastic Strata + Hadoop 2017 conference where the topics ranged from BigData, Spark to lots of AI/ML and not so much on Hadoop explicitly, at least not in the sessions that I attended. I think that is why the conference is renamed Strata + Data from...


Geospatial Benchmark

MemSQL Geospatial Operations Perform 2x - 24x Faster Than Alternatives

The mobile revolution, epitomized by the rise of GPS-enabled smartphones, is transforming our lives – the way we travel, connect with like-minded people, track our goods and shipments, manage traffic congestion, get threat alerts, and hunt for Pokemon. Many estimates place the number of smartphone subscribers at 2 billion, a number expected to grow to 6.1 billion by 2020. Each of these devices serves as a GPS-data emitting mobile sensor, providing geospatial data that can be used to track...


Geospatial Meetup

Geospatial Data Meetup with Mapbox

The global availability of mobile technology means that everyone is connected on the go. For businesses to truly penetrate the consumer market in the age of on-demand products and services, they must find a way to make use of mobile data. Every data point has a place – this is where geospatial data analytics comes into play. The ability to analyze geospatial data and build applications that utilize location will separate market domineers from names left behind. If you know when and how...

Always-on Geospatial Analytics

In the past ten years technology shifts have re-crafted the geospatial applications and analytics landscape. The iPhone and Android ecosystems have fostered a world where almost everyone is a beacon of information Large scale computing capabilities have provided companies like Google and Facebook the ability to keep track of billions of things, and companies like Amazon and Microsoft are making similar computing power available to everyone Global internet coverage continues to expand, including...


Geospatial Real-Time Apps

Locate This! The Battle for App-specific Maps

In early August, a consortium of the largest German automakers including Audi, BMW, and Daimler (Mercedes) purchased Nokia’s Here mapping unit, the largest competitor to Google Maps, for $3 billion. It is no longer easy to get lost. Quite the opposite, we expect and rely on maps for our most common Internet tasks from basic directions to on-demand transportation, discovering a new restaurant or finding a new friend. And the battle is on between the biggest public and private companies in the...


Apache Spark Resources

Essential Resources for Apache Spark

There’s no doubt about it. Apache Spark is well on its way to becoming a ubiquitous technology. Over the past year, we’ve created resources to help our users understand the real-world use cases for Spark as well as showcase how our technologies compliment one another. Now, we’ve organized and consolidated those materials into this very post. Videos Pinterest Measures Real-Time User Engagement with Spark Demo of real-time data pipeline processing and analyzing re-pins...


Supercar Geospatial Demo

Real-Time Geospatial Intelligence with Supercar

Today, MemSQL is showcasing a brand new demonstration of real-time geospatial location intelligence at the Gartner Business Intelligence and Analytics Summit in Las Vegas. The demonstration, titled Supercar, makes use of a dataset containing the details of 170 million real world taxi rides. By sampling this dataset and creating real-time records while simultaneously querying the data, Supercar simulates the ability to monitor and derive insights across hundreds of thousands of objects on the go....

MemSQL at Spark Summit East

We are happy to be in New York City this week for Spark Summit East. We will be sharing more about our new geospatial capabilities, as well as the work with Esri to showcase the power of MemSQL geospatial features in conjunction with Apache Spark. Last week we shared the preliminary release of MemSQL geospatial features introduced at the Esri Developer Summit in Palm Springs. You can read more about the live demonstration showcased at the summit here. The demonstration uses the “Taxistats”...

Geospatial Intelligence Coming to MemSQL

This week at the Esri Developers Summit in Palm Springs, our friends at Esri are previewing upcoming features for the next release of MemSQL, using a huge real-world geospatial dataset. Esri develops geographic information systems (GIS) that function as an integral component in nearly every type of organization. In a recent report by the ARC Advisory Group, the Geographic Information System Global Market Research Study, the authors stated, “Esri is, without a doubt, the dominant player in...
