Oracle Spatial is changing the way spatial information is used in organizations. This book addresses: (1) the special nature of spatial data and its role in professional and consumer applications, (2) the issues in spatial data management such as modeling, storing, accessing, and analyzing spatial data: (3) the Oracle Spatial solution and the integration of spatial data into enterprise databases: and (4) how spatial information is used to understand business and support decisions, to manage customer relations, and to better serve private and corporate users. Pro Oracle Spatial shows how any Oracle application that has a spatial element (e.g. postcode) can take advantage of Spatial functionality.
