Intended for developers with little or no exposure to Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
We encounter spatial data just about daily in many ways. Think Google searches for nearby Thai food, or that Facebook notification about friends at the restaurant next door. But outside the world of GIS professionals, spatial data doesn’t get enough attention or love. This session will explore some of the options for storing and retrieving spatial data, with an emphasis on spatial queries in SQL Server. Finally, we’ll look at some real world examples of businesses using spatial data in their applications.
