GPU-Accelerated Data Analytics



We are excited to be doing a collaboration with MapD on using GPUs!

MapD's open source GPU database and Immerse visualization platform leverages the massive parallelism and memory bandwidth of multiple GPUs to execute SQL queries and render complex visualizations with billions of rows in milliseconds. Participants will get to experience firsthand the power of GPUs with instantaneous interaction.

GPUs have massive parallelism (orders of magnitude more cores), massive memory bandwidth, and their performance continues to accelerate, outpacing the growth of data even. These benefits make GPUs a perfect match for data analytics and visualization.

If you plan to follow along with a laptop, please do this before the workshop:

In this workshop, participants will be given access to a MapD instance, and instructions on the following:

  • How to install and setup the MapD platform in the cloud, or on prem.
  • How to import a geospatial dataset, either one of our samples or one of your own.
  • How to create dashboards with geospatial charts in MapD Immerse.
  • How to create multi-layer maps, combining data from multiple sources.
  • How to update dashboards and share them.
