The Oracle Spatial: Essentials course is applicable to users running either Oracle 10g or Oracle 11g.
The course extensively covers the concepts and usage of the native data types, functions and operators available in Oracle Spatial for implementing geospatial applications and location-based services.
Using the Oracle Application Server MapViewer, students learn how to render maps and view geospatial data managed by Oracle Spatial or Locator. Students also get introduced to basics of geocoding and routing concepts.
Demonstrations and hands-on practice reinforce the fundamental concepts.

Oracle Spatial: Advanced
In this course, students learn to use Oracle Spatial GeoRaster, Oracle Spatial's open solution for storing digital imagery and grid data in the database. Students use an open source GeoRaster loader, GDAL, and Oracle's Java GeoRaster loader to load raster images and learn about the Map Builder and MapViewer support for GeoRaster. Also, students learn how Oracle Spatial topology data model stores topology information in the database and how the Oracle Spatial network data model stores network information in the database for graph analysis. Students also learn about Spatial Analysis and Mining and the Oracle Workspace Manager.
