Storing and manipulating spatial data into SQL Server 2008 is fairly straightforward, thanks to its new data types, methods and indexing. However presenting this data is more of a challenge; showing your users a grid of latitude/longitudes isn’t really going to help and so you need to put your data on a map. The obvious choice for this is Bing Maps, but how can you do this quickly and easily?
To find out how, why not come along to this event at our offices in Reading on 21 January..
If you can’t make it and you are still interested then you could do worse than buy “Beginning Spatial with SQL Server 2008” published by Apress.
