Abstract:              You might have attended many sessions (online webcasts & physical events) that show you how to insert & retrieve spatial data to and from a database in SQL Server 2008. You might have seen standard demos and code snippets that insert data into Geometry/Geography data type in a table and then easily retrieve it using T-SQL. But do you really know what spatial data is all about? Do you understand what is Geo-Spatial stuff is all about? Fathom this - Coordinate Systems, Cartesian coordinate systems, World Geodetic System, Spatial Reference System, Geographic Coordinate System, Spherical Coordinate System, etc. Already confused? Well, Spatial support is just not about 2 data types, it’s a whole world of complex data and Amit Bansal will make this difficult concept easy for you to understand and implement. Amit will present a well-balanced session with delivery of strong concepts followed by crisp demos. Get ready to develop your own Geo Spatial application !
