Build Status


The Esri Geometry API for Java can be used to enable spatial data processing in 3rd-party data-processing solutions. Developers of custom MapReduce-based applications for Hadoop can use this API for spatial processing of data in the Hadoop system. The API is also used by the Hive UDF’s and could be used by developers building geometry functions for 3rd-party applications such as Cassandra, HBase, Storm and many other Java-based “big data” applications.



Building the source:

  1. Download and unzip the .zip file, or clone the repository.
  2. To build the jar, run the mvn compile command-line command from within the cloned directory.
  3. Deploy the esri-geometry-api.jar to the target system, add a reference to it in a Java project.
  4. To run the unit-tests, run the mvn test command-line command from within the cloned directory.

The project is also available as a Maven dependency:
