Step 6: Query the Data in the DynamoDB Table

In this step, you will use HiveQL to query the Features table in DynamoDB. Try the following Hive queries:

  1. All of the feature types (feature_class) in alphabetical order:

    SELECT DISTINCT feature_class FROM ddb_features ORDER BY feature_class;
  2. All of the lakes that begin with the letter "M":

    SELECT feature_name, state_alpha FROM ddb_features WHERE feature_class = 'Lake' AND feature_name LIKE 'M%' ORDER BY feature_name;
  3. States with at least three features higher than a mile (5,280 feet):

    SELECT state_alpha, feature_class, COUNT(*) FROM ddb_features WHERE elev_in_ft > 5280 GROUP by state_alpha, feature_class HAVING COUNT(*) >= 3 ORDER BY state_alpha, feature_class;
