SpatialHadoop

SpatialHadoop is an extended version of Hadoop which enables efficient processing of large scale spatial data. It adds a spatial language, termed Pigeon, spatial indexes, and spatial operations. It ships with a dozen of efficient spatial operations including range query, spatial join, and a suite of computational geometry operations.
