Lucene Spatial - The Forgotten NoSQL Spatial Datastore - Steven Citron-Pousty, Red Hat

Lucene, while a mature and proven technology, has gotten little press in the NoSQL buzz. What started as a full-text search index solution has grown to also be the basis for Solr and ElasticSearch. Most importantly for today's talk they have added the capability to do spatial queries along with full text queries. In this talk I will give a quick intro to Lucene and surrounding projects, give it's sweet spot for use, and then give a quick code sample on indexing and searching of a spatial document collection. The code will use Java, JAX-RS, and CDI to create a geospatial REST service talking to a JavaScript Front-End using Leaflet and OpenStreetMap. The plan after is to have you go home with another geospatial storage and search tool in your toolbox.
