 Feature Presentation

October 21st, 2014
Spatial Data: Looking Outside the Map
Presenter: Hope Foley - Business Intelligence Consultant, BlueGranite

Abstract:
I've said it before and I'll say it again, spatial data doesn't get much love in SQL Server.  It is a feature worthy of much appreciation and will become more vital as more location data is collected.  In this session we will explore spatial data and discover many ways it can be used for incredible analytics.  You will learn some new ways to visualize your data outside of the typical plots on a Bing map layer.  Come and learn how powerful spatial data can be even though it lacks a snazzy "power" title.
