I want to make a small beginner-level project on spatial hadoop and have gone through the website http://spatialhadoop.cs.umn.edu/ for help.Also,i have referred to one paper on spatial hadoop: http://db.disi.unitn.eu/pages/VLDBProgram/pdf/demo/p744-mokbel.pdf I will be using .shp files for input.

There were some things which i couldn't get in details,viz: 
    **1.How can shape files(.shp) be converted/ported to .grid format(referring to the spatial queries given on the mentioned website)?**

   **2.How to interpret and use the result data generated in the hadoop file system on running the spatial queries (given on the mentioned website)?**

I shall be grateful if you could please help me in getting the above issues resolved.Kindly advise any tutorials,if can prove helpful regarding the same. Thanks and regards.
