Earth observation sciences, astronomy, and seismology have large data sets which have inherently rich spatial and geospatial information. In combination with large collections of semantically rich objects which have a large number of thematic properties, they form a new source of knowledge for urban planning, smart cities and natural resource management.
Modeling and storing these properties indicating the relationships between them is best handled in a relational database. Furthermore, the scalability requirements posed by the latest 26-attribute light detection and ranging (LIDAR) data sets are a challenge for file-based solutions.
In this demo we show how to query a 640 billion point data set using a column store enriched with GIS functionality. Through a lightweight and cache conscious secondary index called Imprints, spatial queries performance on a at table storage is comparable to traditional file-based solutions. All the results are visualised in real time using QGIS.
