Introducing GeoDB

GeoDB is a spatial extension of H2, the Java SQL database. GeoDB utilizes the JTS library as its geometry engine and the Hatbox library for spatial indexing support.

Quickstart

  • Download GeoDB
  • Unzip the geodb-0.8-app.zip file
  • Update the PATH environment variable to include geodb-0.8/bin
  • Run the @geodb@ command:

    % geodb foo
    
  • Initialize the spatial database:

    @h2> CREATE ALIAS InitGeoDB for "geodb.GeoDB.InitGeoDB";
    @h2> CALL InitGeoDB();
    
  • Create a spatial table:

    @h2> CREATE TABLE spatial (id INT AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY, geom BLOB);
    
  • Create some spatial data:

    @h2> INSERT INTO spatial (geom) VALUES (ST_GeomFromText('POINT(-5 -5)', 4326));
    @h2> INSERT INTO spatial (geom) VALUES (ST_GeomFromText('POINT(0 0)', 4326));
    @h2> INSERT INTO spatial (geom) VALUES (ST_GeomFromText('POINT(5 5)', 4326));
    
    @h2> SELECT ST_AsText(ST_Buffer(geom, 10)) as buffer FROM spatial;
    
  • Create a spatial index

    @h2> CALL CreateSpatialIndex(null, 'SPATIAL', 'GEOM', '4326');
    
  • Perform a spatial query

    @h2> SELECT ST_AsText(geom) FROM spatial WHERE  id IN (SELECT CAST(HATBOX_JOIN_ID AS INT) FROM HATBOX_MBR_INTERSECTS_ENV('PUBLIC', 'SPATIAL', -2, 2, -2, 2));
