Partnership aids big data analysis

October 24th, 2013, Published in Articles: PositionIT

The integration of Esri’s ArcGIS Platform with MarkLogic’s Enterprise NoSQL database platform provides real-time access to highly diverse data sources for the defense and intelligence communities. New functionality from the integration of the Esri and MarkLogic technologies includes use of the ArcGIS mapping APIs to build a web interface for visualising, querying, and interacting with multi-dimensional data from the NoSQL database. This application leverages open APIs from the ArcGIS platform along with ArcGIS basemaps and can be integrated with any type of supported layer. Users of the application can immediately display data from the NoSQL database over their area of interest and view feature attributes in popups. The integration supports the display of attribute-level data, or microdata, based on NoSQL data structures. The ArcGIS API also allows text-based and spatial querying against the data, as well as providing users with the tools to create annotations. Bringing the MarkLogic Enterprise NoSQL database platform together with Esri’s geospatial analytic software delivers more innovative ways to analyse data than with traditional relational database technology.
