GeoWave is an open source set of software that:

  • Capabilities
  • Geospatial software plugins
    • GeoServer plugin to allow geospatial data in various key-value stores to be shared and visualized via OGC standard services
    • PDAL plugin for working with point cloud data
    • Mapnik plugin for generating map tiles and generally making good looking maps.

Basically, GeoWave is working to bridge geospatial software with distributed compute systems.

Supported versions of core libraries

We work to maintain a N and N-1 tested and supported version pace for the following core libraries.

Geoserver Geotools Accumulo HBase Hadoop PDAL Mapnik Java
2.14.x 20.x [1.7.x,1.9.x] [1.1.x,1.4.x] 2.x 0.9.9 3.x Java8
  • Apache Maven 3.x or greater is required for building
  • Java Advanced Imaging and Java Image I/O should both be installed on Geoserver for GeoWave versions 0.9.2.1 and below (licensing prohibits us redistributing)
    • At the time of writing, Oracle is migrating Java projects around and these links are subject to change. Read the INSTALL files to determine the download file name for different operating systems and architectures. They are stored in the same directory as the INSTALL file. Here are some common download locations.
    • Java Advanced Imaging
    • Java Image I/O
  • See our .travis.yml file for the currently tested build matrix.

Origin

GeoWave was developed at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) in collaboration with RadiantBlue Technologies (Now DigitalGlobe) and Booz Allen Hamilton. The government has "unlimited rights" and is releasing this software to increase the impact of government investments by providing developers with the opportunity to take things in new directions. The software use, modification, and distribution rights are stipulated within the Apache 2.0 license.

Contributing

All pull request contributions to this project will be released under the Apache 2.0 or compatible license. Software source code previously released under an open source license and then modified by NGA staff is considered a "joint work" (see 17 USC § 101); it is partially copyrighted, partially public domain, and as a whole is protected by the copyrights of the non-government authors and must be released according to the terms of the original open source license.
