Terra Populus, or TerraPop, is a cyberinfrastructure project that integrates, preserves, and disseminates massive data collections describing characteristics of the human population and environment over the last six decades. TerraPop has made a number of GIScience advances in the handling of big spatial data to make information interoperable between formats and across scientific communities. In this paper, we describe challenges of these data, or ‘deserts in the deluge’ of data, that are common to spatial big data more broadly, and explore computational solutions specific to microdata, raster, and vector data models.
