A high-performance data store for geospatial files

Apache License, Version 2.0 Actions Status

GeoRocket can store geospatial files such as 3D city models (CityGML), GML and GeoJSON files. Any file saved in GeoRocket can be completely restored later. No information is lost.

Powered by popular Open-Source framework Elasticsearch, GeoRocket offers a wide range of high-speed search features. You can perform spatial queries and search for attributes, layers and tags.

GeoRocket is ready for the Cloud. It is event-driven and designed for high performance and scalability. GeoRocket offers APIs and an HTTP interface which allows it to be integrated in existing applications.

GeoRocket requires Java 8 or higher. Run the following command to build all subprojects:

./gradlew build

The script automatically downloads the correct Gradle version, so you won't have to do anything else. If everything runs successfully you may create a distribution:

./gradlew installDist

If the command finishes successfully, you will find the distribution under build/install.

Building the Docker image

You may build the Docker image for GeoRocket Server locally with the following commands:

./gradlew installDist
docker build -t georocket .

Running GeoRocket

First, follow the instructions on building the GeoRocket distribution above.

Then start GeoRocket with the following command:


You may also run it in server mode (recommended for production use):

build/install/georocket/bin/georocket server

If you don't provide any arguments the command-line application will print usage instructions.

Running GeoRocket Server inside a Docker container

The fastest way to run GeoRocket Server is to use the Docker image from Docker Hub:

docker run --name georocket -d -p 63020:63020 georocket/georocket server

This launches GeoRocket Server in a Docker container and makes it available at http://localhost:63020.

Read the full instructions on the Docker image to get more information.
