GeoTrellis is a high performance geoprocessing engine and programming toolkit. The goal of the project is to transform user interaction with geospatial data by bringing the power of geospatial analysis to real time, interactive web applications.
GeoTrellis was designed to solve three core problems, with a focus on raster processing:
Features: GeoTrellis is designed to help a developer create simple, standard REST services that return the results of geoprocessing models.
Like an RDBS that can optimize queries, GeoTrellis will automatically parallelize and optimize your geoprocessing models where possible.
In the spirit of the object-functional style of Scala, it is easy to both create new operations and compose new operations with existing operations.

Microsoft, IBM, Apple and SAP have been making huge investments in geospatial technology and in some cases, working together. Are there implications for a new era in enterprise spatial analytics? Is this the dawn of true big data geospatial analytics?
