By Stephen McDonald, GIS Fellow at the CGA.

This talk will discuss our efforts to discover and make searchable all the web's spatial data. Techniques for efficiently processing several billion websites and building a large Spatial index will be discussed. Steve will describe processing with the CommonCrawl.org archive of the web using Hadoop and Solr to perform searches of spatial data and our plans for harvesting OGC compliant servers.
