SQL Server 2008 makes available support for the much anticipated spatial technology. The spatial enhancements found in SQL Server 2008 will help allow developers to bring location-intelligence to any application. Customers and partners can consume, use, and extend location-based data through spatial-enabled applications and build location-aware applications by using new spatial data capabilities in SQL Server 2008. Microsoft has a robust partner ecosystem that is already developing solutions that utilize the spatial enhancements. Microsoft is extending the use and value of spatial technology by integrating it directly within SQL Server at no additional cost (compared to the alternatives).
AWhere, Inc, is a full service consulting organization, providing location intelligence software and services using their AWhere mapping software. The geospatial software queries the SQL Server engine and then parses the results on a map. Data from other sources can be added to the map as well as Virtual Earth™ imagery.
Through data visualization, organizations better understand performance, discover trends, uncover opportunities, make better, faster decisions and in the end - save money.
Barrodale Computing Services Ltd. (BCS)
BCS, a scientific computing company providing spatial software solutions since 1978, has developed GiSTXten for SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008. GiST (Generalized Search Tree) indexes generalize B-trees and R-trees, and are extensible both in the data types supported and the queries that can be applied to the data. Using GiSTXten for GiST index development greatly simplifies the implementation of these complex indexes and provides a mechanism for powerful and flexible database searches using these indexes.
