TAREEG: A MapReduce-Based System for Extracting Spatial Data from OpenStreetMap

TAREEG is a web-service that makes spatial data from anywhere in the world available to any researcher or individual. TAREEG gets its data by leveraging the OpenStreetMap dataset; the most comprehensive available spatial data of the world. Yet, it is challenging to use OpenStreetMap data due to its large size, special data format, and the noisy nature of spatial data. TAREEG employs MapReduce based techniques to make it efficient and easy to extract OpenStreetMap data in a standard form with minimal effort. TAREEG is accessible via tareeg.org
