Processing your data

The GeoSpock database provides you with the administrative tools and processes to enable you to:

  • load your data into the database
  • index it for use with the analysis tools, including the automatic creation of AWS resources to support the ingestion of your data
  • manage your data throughout its life-cycle to:
    • incrementally add data as it becomes available
    • delete data that you no longer require

Ingested data is stored as a dataset; see Using datasets for more information.

Data preparation

Before you can load your source input data into the GeoSpock database , you need to prepare your data, by making sure that:

  • it is in a supported format
  • the file size and directory structure will facilitate the ingestion process

See Preparing your data for ingest for guidance on how to format and organize your source input data.

Data ingestion

To start analyzing your data, you need to load it into the GeoSpock database. To do this, you need:

You can then ingest your data; see Ingesting source input data for guidance on how to do this.

Incremental ingests

When new data becomes available, you can add this to an existing dataset using an incremental ingest.

Data administration

The GeoSpock database makes ingested data available as datasets.

Using the GeoSpock CLI, you can:

  • list the datasets loaded into the GeoSpock database
  • view the status and history of each dataset
  • delete datasets that you no longer require

See Using datasets for guidance on using the GeoSpock CLI.
