The geospatial data features support complex geographic information systems (GIS) applications, enterprise applications, and location-based services applications, augmenting the Oracle Database Locator feature, which provides storage, analysis, and indexing of 2D location data accessible through SQL and standard programming languages.
These advanced spatial features include:
Spatial manipulation and analysis such as buffer generation, linear referencing;
Complete geocoding engine and routing engines;
Storage, indexing, and analysis of image and gridded raster data;
A persistent topology data model and schema for land management applications;
Location-based classification, binning, and correlation for geomarketing analysis;
3D and point cloud and LiDAR data management and analysis.
