Big geospatial data have unique challenges not associated with the greater big data community, namely, that raster and vector analytical approaches have evolved along two separate paths. Terra Populus is a next-generation spatial database repository that focuses on the integration of heterogeneous big data. When accessing Terra Populus through a web interface, users are able to transform microdata, vector, and raster datasets into user-requested formats for analysis. By providing this framework, Terra Populus lowers the barriers for researchers examining human-environment interactions.
