SpatialHadoop is an extended MapReduce framework supporting global indexing techniques that partition spatial datasets across several machines and improve spatial query processing performance compared to traditional Hadoop systems. SpatialHadoop supports several spatial operations (e.g., Nearest Neighbor search, range query, spatial intersection join, etc.) and seven spatial partitioning techniques (Grid, Quadtree, STR, STR+, -d tree, Z-curve and Hilbert-curve). Distance-Join Queries (DJQs), like the Nearest Neighbors Join Query (NNJQ) and Closest Pairs Query (CPQ), are common operations used in numerous spatial applications. DJQs are costly operations, since they combine spatial joins with distance-based search. Data partitioning improves the management of large datasets and speeds up query performance. Therefore, performing DJQs efficiently with new partitioning methods in SpatialHadoop is a challenging task. In this paper, a new data partitioning technique based on Voronoi-Diagrams ...
