New Geo Library for Amazon DynamoDB
On Sept 5 Amazon lauched a new library for its Amazon Web Services developers. It's a set of tools to help developers produce location-based apps. It provides a basic set of tools to do spatial queries against Amazon DynamoDB (a NoSQL database service Amazon offers).
The library provides tools to:
- create spatial data in DynamDB
- query within a rectragle
- query within a radius
Since I so rarely hear of Amazon and geospatial, it was nice to know the company is still involved.
