Searching for Oil: Geographical Data Analysis with Apache Mahout

  • Kerry Koitzsch


In this chapter, we discuss a particularly interesting application for distributed big data analytics: using a domain model to look for likely geographic locations for valuable minerals, such as petroleum, bauxite (aluminum ore), or natural gas. We touch on a number of convenient technology packages to ingest, analyze, and visualize the resulting data, especially those well-suited for processing geolocations and other geography-related data types.
