Hadoop-GIS : A High Performance Spatial Query System for Analytical Medical Imaging with MapReduce

  title={Hadoop-GIS : A High Performance Spatial Query System for Analytical Medical Imaging with MapReduce},
  author={Fusheng Wang and Ablimit Aji and Qiaoling Liu and J. Saltz},
Querying and analyzing large volumes of spatially oriented scientific data becomes increasingly important for many applications. For example, analyzing high-resolution digital pathology images through computer algorithms provides rich spatially derived information of micro-anatomic objects of human tissues. The spatial oriented information and queries at both cellular and sub-cellular scales share common characteristics of “Geographic Information System (GIS)”, and provide an effective vehicle…

Experiences on Processing Spatial Data with MapReduce
This work presents its experiences in applying the MapReduce model to solve two important spatial problems: (a) bulk-construction of R-Trees and (b) aerial image quality computation, which involve vector and raster data, respectively, and their results confirm the excellent scalability of the Map reduce framework in processing parallelizable problems.

A data model and database are designed to address the data management and query requirements of detailed characterization of micro-anatomic morphology through many interrelated analysis pipelines on whole-slide images and tissue microarrays (TMAs).
RCFile: A fast and space-efficient data placement structure in MapReduce-based warehouse systems
This paper presents a big data placement structure called RCFile (Record Columnar File) and its implementation in the Hadoop system and shows the effectiveness of RCFile in satisfying the four requirements.
A comparison of join algorithms for log processing in MaPreduce
Key implementation details of a number of well-known join strategies in MapReduce are described and a comprehensive experimental comparison of these join techniques on a 100-node Hadoop cluster is presented.
Analyzing massive astrophysical datasets: Can Pig/Hadoop or a relational DBMS help?
This paper develops a use case that comprises five representative queries and implements this use case in one distributed DBMS and in the Pig/Hadoop system, finding that certain representative analyses are easy to express in each engine's highlevel language and both systems provide competitive performance and improved scalability relative to current IDL-based methods.
HadoopDB: An Architectural Hybrid of MapReduce and DBMS Technologies for Analytical Workloads
This paper explores the feasibility of building a hybrid system that takes the best features from both technologies; the prototype built approaches parallel databases in performance and efficiency, yet still yields the scalability, fault tolerance, and flexibility of MapReduce-based systems.
Data Partitioning for Parallel Spatial Join Processing
A framework combining the data-partitioning techniques used by most parallel join algorithms in relational databases and the filter-and-refine strategy for spatial operation processing is proposed for parallel spatial join processing.
Efficient processing of spatial joins using R-trees
This paper presents a first detailed study of spatial join processing using R-trees, particularly R*-tree, and presents several techniques for improving its execution time with respect to both, CPU- and I/O-time.
Partition based spatial-merge join
PBSM (Partition Based Spatial-Merge), a new algorithm for performing spatial join operation that is especially effective when neither of the inputs to the join have an index on the joining attribute, is described.
Integrating hadoop and parallel DBMs
This paper describes three efforts towards tight and efficient integration of Hadoop and Teradata EDW, where data in both systems are partitioned across multiple nodes for parallel computing, which creates integration optimization opportunities not possible for DBMSs running on a single node.
