Do you think we are missing an alternative of Geotrellis or a related project?
GeoTrellis is a Scala library and framework that provides APIs for reading, writing and operating on geospatial raster and vector data. GeoTrellis also provides helpers for these same operations in Spark and for performing MapAlgebra operations on rasters. It is released under the Apache 2 License.
Please visit the project site for more information as well as some interactive demos.
You're also welcome to ask questions and talk to developers (let us know what you're working on!) via Gitter.
GeoTrellis is currently available for Scala 2.11 and 2.12, using Spark 2.4.x.
To get started with SBT, simply add the following to your build.sbt file:
libraryDependencies += "org.locationtech.geotrellis" %% "geotrellis-raster" % "<latest version>"
To grab the latest
RC or milestone build, add these resolvers:
// maven central snapshots resolvers ++= Seq( "sonatype-snapshot" at "https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots/" ) // or eclipse snapshots resolvers ++= Seq( "eclipse-releases" at "https://repo.eclipse.org/content/groups/releases", "eclipse-snapshots" at "https://repo.eclipse.org/content/groups/snapshots" )

Where is our commit history and contributor list prior to Nov 2016?

In November 2016, GeoTrellis moved it's repository from the
GeoTrellis GitHub Organization to it's current
home in the LocationTech GitHub organization.
In the process of moving our repository, we went through an IP review process.
Because the Eclipse foundation only reviews a snapshot of the repository, and
not all of history, we had to start from a clean
Unfortunately, we lost our commit and contributor count in the move. These are significant statistics for a repository, and our current counts make us look younger than we are. GeoTrellis has been an open source project since 2011. This is what our contributor and commit count looked like before the move to LocationTech:
[Commit and contributor count before LocationTech move](docs/img/contributor-and-commit-count-pre-locationtech.png)
Along with counts, we want to make sure that all the awesome people who contributed to GeoTrellis before the LocationTech move can still be credited on a contributors page. For posterity, I will leave the following contributors page to what it was before the move:
Tie Local History to Old History
You can also tie your local clone's master history to the old history by running
> git fetch origin refs/replace/*:refs/replace/*
origin points to https://github.com/locationtech/geotrellis.
This will allow you to see the old history for commands like
