Mosaic is an extension to the Apache Spark framework that allows easy and fast processing of very large geospatial datasets.


From version 0.4.0, Mosaic will require either
  • Databricks Runtime 11.2+ with Photon enabled

  • Databricks Runtime for ML 11.2+

Mosaic 0.3 series does not support DBR 13 (coming soon with Mosaic 0.4 series); also, DBR 10 is no longer supported in Mosaic.

We recommend using Databricks Runtime versions 11.3 LTS or 12.2 LTS with Photon enabled; this will leverage the Databricks H3 expressions when using H3 grid system.

Mosaic provides:
  • easy conversion between common spatial data encodings (WKT, WKB and GeoJSON);

  • constructors to easily generate new geometries from Spark native data types;

  • many of the OGC SQL standard ST_ functions implemented as Spark Expressions for transforming, aggregating and joining spatial datasets;

  • high performance through implementation of Spark code generation within the core Mosaic functions;

  • optimisations for performing point-in-polygon joins using an approach we co-developed with Ordnance Survey (blog post); and

  • the choice of a Scala, SQL and Python API.
