Speaker: Pinal Dave
Event Date: 24th July 2010
Session Time: 10:30am – 11:30am
Location: Ahmedabad Management Association, AMA Complex, ATIRA, Dr. Vikram Sarabhai Marg.
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 delivers new spatial data types that enable you to consume, use, and extend location-based data through spatial-enabled applications. Attend this session to learn how to use spatial functionality in next version of SQL Server to build and optimize spatial queries. This session outlines the new geography data type to store geodetic spatial data and perform operations on it, use the new geometry data type to store planar spatial data and perform operations on it, take advantage of new spatial indexes for high performance queries, use the new spatial results tab to quickly and easily view spatial query results directly from within Management Studio, extend spatial data capabilities by building or integrating location-enabled applications through support for spatial standards and specifications and much more.
The event is oversubscribed at the moment. I suggest to arrive at location early enough to get your space. It is quite possible even though you have registered you may not get the chance to enter the venue. Please come in early and secure your seat. The complete agenda is listed here.
I will also have special gift for few of attendees. Hope to see you soon there.
