Hadoop World 2011: Indexing the Earth - Large Scale Satellite Image Processing Using Hadoop

Skybox Imaging uses Hadoop as the engine for their satellite image processing system.

Description

Skybox Imaging is using Hadoop as the engine of it's satellite image processing system. Using CDH to store and process vast quantities of raw satellite image data enables Skybox to create a system that scales as they launch larger numbers of ever more complex satellites. Skybox has developed a CDH based framework that allows image processing specialists to develop complex processing algorithms using native code and then publish those algorithms into the highly scalable Hadoop Map/Reduce interface. This session will provide an overview of how we use hdfs, hbase and map/reduce to process raw camera data into high resolution satellite images.
