GeoRocket 1.1.0

I’m happy to an­nounce that we just re­leased the new ver­sion 1.1.0 of GeoR­ocket OSS. GeoR­ocket is a high-per­form­ance data store for geo­spa­tial files that we de­velop at the Fraunhofer In­sti­tute for Com­puter Graph­ics Re­search IGD in Darm­stadt, Ger­many. It can store GeoJSON files, 3D city mod­els (e.g. CityGML), GML files or any other XML-based geo­spa­tial data sets. GeoR­ocket provides the fol­low­ing fea­tures:

  • High per­form­ance data stor­age with mul­tiple back-ends such as Amazon S3, Mon­goDB, dis­trib­uted file sys­tems (e.g. HDFS or Ceph), or your local hard drive (en­abled by de­fault)
  • Sup­port for high-speed search fea­tures based on the pop­u­lar Open-Source frame­work Elast­ic­search. You can per­form spa­tial quer­ies and search for at­trib­utes, lay­ers and tags.
  • GeoR­ocket is made for the Cloud. Based on the Open-Source toolkit Vert.x it is re­act­ive and can handle big files and a large num­ber of par­al­lel re­quests.
  • GeoR­ocket ex­ists in two edi­tions—​an Open-Source ver­sion and a Pro edi­tion for en­ter­prise ap­plic­a­tions
