Big data analytics has entered popular discussion amongst the commercial IT
industry, but it is still a challenge to retain, query and present large
geo-enabled data sets. MongoDB and BoundlessGeo have offerings that enable
performant, standards based display and storage of data.
MongoDB (formerly 10gen) develops a distributed database optimized to store
and scale large amounts of data. Performance is maintained by sharding
collections over redundant commodity machines. MongoDB supports
planar/spherical geometry. http://www.mongodb.com/
BoundlessGeo (formerly OSGeo) provides software and services in Open Source,
OGC compliant geospatial products such as Geoserver, PostGIS, OpenLayers
and QGIS. They maintain the OSGeo software suite DVD for sampling
opensource geo-spatial applications.
Representatives from both companies will be making presentations and fielding
