I’m getting ready to create a course in big data analytics with GIS. I have lots of ideas as to what to do, but one thing I know is that I will be using spatial databases and SQL. I’ll also be using Manifold Future.
ESRI has recently introduced their ArcGIS GeoAnalytics Server, which will introduce many GIS professionals to big data analytics with GIS. They have some interesting scenarios and example data using NYC taxi cabs. I think these will be really good case studies.
This video (just shy of 20 minutes) will use SQL and Manifold to try and address these big data problems.
Keep an eye on my blog as I will be rolling out new ideas as I prepare my course for the Spring.
