One of my main agendas here at the research center is to evaluate the usefulness of semantic technologies for geospatial applications.
Following the release-early-release-often tradition I have uploaded Parallel::MapReduce onto CPAN. It follows the ideas about embedding MapReduce more into the language, and to offer a pipelining feature.
But needless to say, this is all very pre-alpha, so tread carefully at your own risk and let me know what you think about the roadmap.
