All the Ships in the World: Visualizing Data with Google Cloud and Maps

Francesc Campoy Flores, Mano Marks, Kurt Schwehr

Tens of thousands of ships report their position at least once every 5 minutes, 24 hours a day. Visualizing that quantity of data and serving it out to large numbers of people takes lots of power both in the browser and on the server. This session will explore the use of Maps, App Engine, Go, Compute Engine, BigQuery, Cloud Storage, and WebGL to do massive data visualization.
