Is there a way to add a geometry column in hadoop? Please give me some getting-started tutorial for geoprocessing in hadoop. Like, I have a database which have point values and if I take a random point, I need to check all the values which come under 10km radius of that point.
You can start with the samples.
There are example calls to the various ST_Geometry UDFs in the scripts under spatial-framework-for-hadoop/hive/test/.
