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” dataset: a compilation of 170 million real-world NYC taxi rides. It includes GPS coordinates of the pickup and dropoff, distance, and travel time. MemSQL is coupled with the new version of Esri’s ArcGIS Server, which has a new feature to translate ArcGIS queries into external database queries. From there we generate heatmaps from the raw data in sub-second time.
This week we launched the official news release of MemSQL geospatial capabilities.
By integrating geospatial functions, MemSQL enables enterprises to achieve greater database efficiency with a single database that is in-memory, linearly scalable and supports the full rage of relational SQL and geospatial functions. With MemSQL, geospatial data no longer remains separate and becomes just another data type with lock-free capabilities and powerful manipulation functions.
Meanwhile at Spark Summit East, you can catch the Esri-Spark-MemSQL combination in action at the talk by Mansour Raad from Esri.
