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
