As the amount of GIS data we need to keep track of increases, the amount of devices accessing it increases, and the amount of GIS writes increase, we’re finding that, much like real-time web applications, normal RDBMS’s are not well suited to scaling. This talk covers why GIS data is hard to scale in a normal RDBMS, what nonrelational stores exist out there, and some basic examples of how to do spatial queries within a nonrelational store.
