CouchDB is a document-oriented database with an RESTful HTTP API. Its appliance ranges from huge data sets shared across multiple servers to embedded systems. The built-in multi-master replication makes CouchDB a unique solution for offline synchronisation for mobile devices. GeoCouch is an R-tree implementation that enables CouchDB to do geospatial queries. This talk gives an overview of CouchDB and an introduction into the geospatial world with GeoCouch.
