JTS helps ESRI with big data problem

Can't help but feeling a little smug about this post on using JTS in a Hadoop process for generating heatmaps for demographic data.

He only seems to be using JTS for generating point buffers, which is hardly a challenging use case.  But if having a fast point buffer algorithm is a key metric I'm not going to complain.

As usual the link for JTS is pointing to the old Vivid site - the current one is this.
