Mobile devices, wearable technologies and cars collect geolocation data and share it with manufacturers and those willing and able to attain it. We are consumer readily provide our current geolocation through app like facebook, twitter and foursquare. As a developer, how do you begin to process, store and display the wealth of data available. During this talk we will discuss the building blocks of geospatial data, java libraries that can help us process it and how to persist it.
