With the increasing availability of spatial data and applications (such as GPS navigation) to both consumers and enterprises, there is a need to manage and analyze this data as well. SQL Server 2008 introduces new standards-based spatial data types and associated functionality to the relational engine. And now, with SQL Server 2008 Release 2, spatial data can also be visualized in Reporting Services maps. In this session, we'll explore both the new spatial data types and maps, using demos to show this functionality in action.
