Oracle Spatial + Where 2.0?
So I just got back from the Where 2.0 conference. All in all it was a pretty good show. I have my issues with some of the talks, but overall it was really good. The question I have is. Where was Oracle?
Don't you think that Oracle Spatial should have been there?
Maybe I missed them, but they were not presenting and they were not in the participant list.
Intel, Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, Autodesk, ESRI, MapInfo, Ask, AOL, Cisco, Motorola, MapQuest, eBay, Apple, and many others were there.
Some presenters really talked about Oracle Spatial though...
I only work with Oracle (not Oracle Spatial though) and ESRI's SDE, so that it what I post on. Some of the examples I post are standard SQL though. Oracle's analytical functions are not--but damn are they powerful.
is there any internet resources for developers using pl/sql and arcxml?
it's been difficult to be to find any doc about this matter,i'd appreciate your help.
thanks in advance!
ps: my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
Oracle were probably too busy dealing with the large number of companies now realizing that they don't need SDE or any ARCxxx to host and maintain their spatial data.
