In this session, learn about the new features in Oracle Spatial 11g Release 2 from a panel of Oracle Spatial customers describing how their organizations use Oracle's spatial technologies and how they are benefiting from the new features in Oracle Database 11g Release 2. In addition, the presentation provides a brief introduction to and overview of Oracle's spatial technologies. Featured customers include CoreLogic Spatial Solutions, Xcel Energy (presented by Current Group), US Army Corps of Engineers, TARGUSinfo, and the Italian Ministry of Agriculture.
This session covers Oracle Spatial 11g Release 2 new features, such as enhancements to the GeoRaster feature, the geocoding and routing engines, spatial Web services, the network data model, and 3-D and Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) features. GeoRaster has been enhanced with a Java API, GDAL open source ETL support, and more image manipulation functions. All Oracle Spatial Web services are now certified against Oracle WebLogic Server. The highly scalable network data model has enhanced functions for network management in telecom, utility, and routing applications. Support for 3-D lets users more easily build 3-D design and visualization applications. Data loading is improved for high-volume data such as point clouds and LIDAR data.

The Oracle Spatial network data model provides an open and persistent network data model, simplifies network data management and analysis, separates connectivity and application information so that applications can focus on specific application knowledge, and integrates with Oracle Spatial technology for spatial information management. This session will demonstrate how to build network tracing applications for utilities and logistics using Oracle Spatial.
Performance, tuning, application design, and other best practices are covered in this session based on the experiences of leading Oracle Spatial customers, system integrators, and partners. Learn how to improve performance, optimally use parallelism and partitioning, and best deploy Oracle Spatial applications. Hear how to tune and optimze systems for best performance of the MapViewer feature.

Building Maps with Oracle Spatial and Oracle Fusion Middleware MapViewer
In this session, learn how to implement the Oracle Spatial Web Feature Service and Web Map Service. Oracle Spatial 11g introduces a Web services platform for accessing, incorporating, publishing, and deploying geospatial services such as routing, geocoding, business directory, catalog, geospatial features, and mapping. Oracle Spatial supports key XML-based Open Geospatial Consortium geospatial Web services standards such as Open Location Services (OpenLS), Web Feature Service (WFS), Web Feature Service - Transactional (WFS-T), and Catalogue Service (CSW). Authorization, authentication, and transport confidentiality and integrity features ensure secure Web services. Developers can use Java and PL/SQL client APIs for deployment.
