To start using ST-Hadoop, simply download its binaries or its source code from here. ST-Hadoop is a distributed system that runs on clusters. ST-Hadoop is a MapReduce framework for spatio-temporal data. Before start working with ST-Hadoop, it is necessary to have an up-and-running Hadoop instance.
These following tutorials describe how to get started by using ST-Hadoop by building and accessing the spatio-temporal indexes. In each tutorial, we will walk you through a simple and a clear example of how you exploit indexing and querying features inside ST-Hadoop.
- Spatio-temporal Join.
Installation and Configuration:
- This tutorial sets up ST-Hadoop on Linux. If you want to run SpatialHadoop on Windows, you can try Hortonworks.
- JavaTM 1.6.x or higher must be installed. We recommend using Java 1.6.0_24.
To check the version of Java installed type
$ java -version
To install java type$ sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jre-headless
Compile and Build from source code:
To build ST-Hadoop binaries from the source code, the user can use Apache Maven build tool. Simply run a maven in the root source folder of ST-Hadoop. You should find ST-Hadoop under the ./target directory.
--- mvn compile --- mvn assembly:assembly
