2.2MB (PDF) Case Study: Using Oracle Application Express and Spatial Data to Deliver Your Newspaper Oracle Spatial 11g Release 2 New Features Deep Dive

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.

Oracle Spatial, Oracle Locator, Oracle Fusion Middleware's MapViewer Feature in Business Apps Implementing Oracle Spatial Web Services
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.
