FOUNDED BY THE ORIGINAL CREATORS OF APACHE SEDONA
Jia Yu and Mo Sarwat released the first version of Sedona (back then named GeoSpark), which extended big data systems to support spatial data processing capabilities. In less than two years, the system gained a lot of traction and was being used in operational production for a plethora of use cases.
Sedona entered the Apache Software Foundation. It now provides support for both Spark and Flink as well as enables users to develop their spatial data processing jobs using Spatial SQL and Spatial Python.
In June 2022, Jia and Mo founded Wherobots to enable every organization to unleash the potential of data using the power of spatial analytics and Apache Sedona.
Wherobots launched SedonaDB and Wherobots Cloud in October 2023, making Sedona’s spatial analytics technology available as a no-hassle fully-managed cloud solution.
Backed by their unwavering support, we’re empowered to push the boundaries of geospatial technology and deliver groundbreaking solutions to the world.
