Some news from SimpleGeo as the company announces that on Tuesday March 29 the anticipated public launch of SimpleGeo Storage will finally roll out. Some details… recall, SimpleGeo Storage is a geographically aware spatial database in the cloud – a general purpose spatial database that is suitable for a large (and growing) number of applications being created by developers.
In response to the huge demand (in particular from gaming) from developers for real-time location-aware data the company has been developing this solution for the past 8 months – their own distributed spatial database technology based on the latest research in multidimensional data structures and distributed database theory. This from Joe Stump, SimpleGeo CTO and Co-Founder, “Unlike other spatial databases, you don’t have to be a GIS expert to use SimpleGeo Storage. You can quickly, securely, and easily access SimpleGeo Storage from a very simple HTTP API from any mobile device, server, or website in your stack.”
