The geospatial capabilities in SQL Server are not only powerful, but easy and fun to use! In this session, learn how to integrate location-awareness into your own applications with the geometry and geography data types.
So you heard about the new spatial functionality in SQL Server 2008, rushed back to your database and added geography and geometry columns to all your tables, eager to create the next Google Earth-beating application. You then click the Execute button and wait. And wait. And wait some more. (You get the idea). Spatial data is a rather unique beast, and designing efficient spatial queries requires specific techniques when compared to other, more traditional types of data.
