An Introduction to Geospatial Data in Redis Through Urban Forestry

When: August 29th, 2017 | 9:00 AM PDT
Duration: 60 minutes
Featured Speaker: Kyle Davis, Techincal Marketing Manager, Redis Labs
Audience: Architects, Developers, Ops Engineers

You Will Learn

  • Why geospatial data is challenging to store and retrieve using traditional indexing methods
  • How Redis leverages the geohash geocoding system
  • How to model your geospatial data for efficient storage and retrieval
  • How to leverage other Redis features with geospatial data (modules, sorted sets, hashes)

Connecting your data to locations in the real-world is a challenging task. Yet, this is an ever-present and highly requested feature of many web services. In this webinar, we’ll explore how Redis stores and queries geospatial data then we’ll import an illustrative dataset of every tree maintained by a large municipality to understand common geospatial use-cases and how they can be solved with Redis.
