Cloudant is pleased to announce that we have joined the Open Geospatial Consortium
The OGC serves as forum to promote collaboration and development of geospatial standards for geospatial interoperability.
Cloudant are building a high availability geospatial platform based on its existing core technology that supports distributed indices and multi-node queries. Part of this development is to build a version of this platform that can be deployed on site as well as by our hosting providers.
and the analysts using ArcGIS Online.
Cloudant will stand on the shoulders of the giants in the industry, GEOS
and also learn from the development of the open source geospatial database, PostGIS
. Distribution, high availability and support for unstructured data will be in the platform and Cloudant will offer standard interfaces to ingest and disseminate geospatial data.
As part of this development we will review the geospatial code and see which parts we can donate to the open source community and which parts need to stay part of our commercially supported offering.
If you have requirements for geospatial data and Cloudant please send them to us here.
