Managing and analyzing large data volumes in practice

Massive data volumes are becoming increasingly common, especially in the geospatial domain, no matter if georeferenced raster imagery is involved, LiDAR data is used, or detailed city models have to be dealt with. This poses a significant challenge to data management platforms which need to process these datasets at scale and serve the results to clients in such a way that fluent visualization is possible. In their latest releases, LuciadRIA and LuciadFusion have been optimized to work in conjunction with the Oracle Exadata Database Machine in order to address this challenge.

This presentation will provide an overview of what this means for real-world projects, using tests with a large, detailed city model as a concrete example.
