Is there any nosql database which supports the below

1) Should support local coordinates (spatial data which holds the coordinatesof door, Infra, etc.)

2)Integration with Geoserver.

    Seeing your previous question, are you sure you need to go nosql? You should try PostgreSQL/Postgis, if you are coming from Oracle you might be surprised by the difference :-) Commented Aug 21, 2019 at 7:20
  • Have you looked already and eliminated anything yet?

  • @AndreaAime - We have done a POC with PostGis but haven't observed much difference in performance 1) Loading data from AutoCAD to POSTGIS 2) And budget as we want to go with Vendor Commented Aug 21, 2019 at 8:20
  • @Spacedman - Yes, we looked both Solr and MangoDB but both have limitations that load only Geo coordiantes and doesn't support local coordinates. Commented Aug 21, 2019 at 8:27
  • What do you mean by "local coordinates"? Simply an X and Y offset from some locally defined reference point? Any database can do that.

The Elastisearch geo-shape datatype seems to support any kind of unit (at least judging from the precision field): https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/geo-shape.html

NGA provides an Elasticsearch datastore that connects to Elastisearch: https://github.com/ngageoint/elasticgeo

However, I never tried either personally, and the GeoServer community has no contact with the elastigeo developers and thus cannot endorse or offer help with the store usage.

  • Later in the geo-shape document Note: Elasticsearch uses WGS-84 coordinates only..
