Apache Pig™ is a platform for analyzing large data sets. It consists of a high-level language for expressing data analysis programs, coupled with infrastructure for evaluating these programs. Pig's infrastructure layer consists of a compiler that produces sequences of Map-Reduce programs. Pig's language layer currently consists of a textual language called Pig Latin.

This section provides documentation about installing, upgrading, configuring and using Pig with MapR, but it does not duplicate Apache documentation.

You can also refer to additional documentation available on the Apache Pig website.
