Due to the surge of spatio-temporal data volume, the popularity of location-based services and applications, and the importance of extracted knowledge from spatio-temporal data to solve a wide range of real-world problems, a plethora of research and development work has been done in the area of spatial and spatio-temporal data analytics in the past decade. The main goal of existing works was to develop algorithms and technologies to capture, store, manage, analyze, and visualize spatial or

The researchers have contributed either by adding spatio-temporal support with existing systems, by developing a new system from scratch for processing spatio-temporal data, or by implementing algorithms for mining spatio-temporal data. The existing ecosystem of spatial and spatio-temporal data analytics can be categorized into three groups, (1) spatial databases (SQL and NoSQL), (2) big spatio-temporal data processing infrastructures, and (3) programming languages and software tools for processing spatio-temporal data. Since existing surveys mostly investigated big data infrastructures for processing spatial data, this survey has explored the whole ecosystem of spatial and spatio-temporal analytics along with an up-to-date review of big spatial data processing systems. This survey also portrays the importance and future of spatial and spatio-temporal data analytics.
