Streaming GIS using PostGIS & SQLstream

Talk Type: 
45 Minute Talk
Technical Level: 

Wireless sensors and internet services are generating data faster than conventional database technologies can process that data. In particular, mobile resource management requires the stream processing of high volume, location-based data. Solutions require new methods such as Streaming SQL to address these new sources of big data, in real-time.

This presentation will discuss key concepts in stream computing, data warehouse feeds and the integration of PostGIS into a high performance streaming environment. We will demonstrate the solution with examples from SQLstream's commercial traffic monitoring application, presently deployed across New South Wales, Australia.
