What is IBM Geospatial Analytics?

The IBM Geospatial Analytics service allows you to leverage real-time geospatial analytics to track when devices enter, leave, or hang out in defined regions. The service is powered by IBM Streaming Analytics but provides targeted functionality to support a Geospatial use case.

IBM Streaming Analytics for IBM Cloud is an advanced analytic platform allowing user-developed applications to quickly ingest, analyze, and correlate information as it arrives from a wide variety of real time-data sources. Analysis of structured and unstructured streaming data like text, video, audio, geospatial, and sensor data helps organizations spot opportunities and risks to make decisions in near real time.

Feature changes

The IBM Geospatial Analytics Service is being withdrawn.

Timeline: End of Market – October 3, 2019

At that time, new instances of the service will no longer be deployable. Existing instances of the service will remain running. A date for end of service for those instances is not being set at this time.

Migration

The Geospatial Service is based on the Streaming Analytics service. A sample application is being provided to help customers currently relying on the Geospatial Service to move their workloads to the IBM Streaming Analytics service.

Getting Started with IBM Streaming Analytics

To get started with services in any region:

  1. Visit the Streaming Analytics page in the IBM Cloud catalog and create a Streams instance.
  2. Run one of our Sample Applications, or develop and run your own Streams app by following our Streaming Analytics Development Guide.
  3. To estimate costs for your workload, use the cost calculator and select your country for local currency rates.
