    • Studio repository must include Spatial and Graph
    • WebLogic 12.2.1.3+
    • JDK 8 only 64-bit (update 181 or later)
    • Public internet connection to access background map styles of OpenStreetMap

    See Get Started.

  • Where do I get Spatial Studio?
  • How is Spatial Studio deployed?

    Spatial Studio is deployed as a standard Java EE application archive. See Get Started.

  • How often will there be new releases of Spatial Studio?

    Studio updates are planned to be released quarterly.

  • Do I need Spatial or GIS knowledge to use Spatial Studio?

    No. Spatial Studio is a self-service application that has been designed for the business user who does not have any GIS or Spatial knowledge. Spatial Studio is designed to enable business analysts and non-GIS developers to use the spatial features in Oracle Database and incorporate spatial analysis in applications and workflows.   There is no coding required.

  • If I am a developer with Spatial or GIS knowledge, can I benefit from using Spatial Studio?

    Yes. Spatial Studio provides a simple user interface to access the Oracle Spatial and Graph features for spatial filtering, aggregation, transformation, and calculation.  Upon creating spatial analyses, you have visibility into the SQL that is generated for use as blueprints for further SQL development.  In addition, datasets and analysis results are exposed as REST endpoints for programmatic integration.  Finally, interactive map visualizations with analysis results can be integrated into other applications as embeddable web content.

  • What data sources can I use with Spatial Studio?

    Spatial Studio reads data from Oracle Databases.  Spatial Studio also allows you to upload data from Excel spreadsheets and Esri shapefiles to Oracle Database.  Support for additional data sources and upload formats are planned for future releases.

  • What types of visualizations does Spatial Studio support?

    With Spatial Studio you can visualize data as maps and tables.  There are more visualizations planned for future releases.

  • Can you have multiple visualizations in the same project?

     Yes. You can have multiple maps and/or tables in a single project.

  • What background map styles are provided with Spatial Studio?

    Spatial Studio provides three styles of OpenStreetMap: OSM Bright, Positron, and Dark Matter. These maps require public internet access.

  • Can I use a different background map such as an internal map service?

    This is planned for a future release. 

  • Does my data have to include an Oracle spatial datatype?

    No, Spatial Studio can work with any data that includes addresses or latitude/longitude coordinates.

  • What is the geocoder used by Spatial Studio?

    By default Spatial Studio uses the Oracle Maps Cloud Service. You can also use your own instance of the Oracle Spatial and Graph Java EE Geocoder.

  • Does Spatial Studio give you the ability to make corrections to geocoded results?

    Yes, Spatial Studio highlights geocoding issues due to data inconsistency and allows the user to make corrections.

  • What countries are supported for geocoding?

    All countries except China, Japan, and Korea. Some countries and regions may lack 100% coverage for geocoding.

  • Does Spatial Studio support other forms of geographic enrichment?

    We plan to add additional enrichment capabilities (hierarchies, place names, etc.) in future releases.

  • Can I publish the results of Spatial Studio analysis using REST?

    Yes, REST endpoints are auto-generated for datasets and spatial analysis results.

  • Does Spatial Studio take the place of the Spatial Map Visualization Component (previously called MapViewer)?

    No, the Spatial and Graph Map Visualization Component is intended for developers who are experienced with JavaScript.  Spatial Studio is a self-service application.

  • Is Spatial Studio included in Oracle Analytics Cloud?

    No.  Spatial Studio is part of the Oracle Database product family. 

  • Can you export data from Spatial Studio for use in DV?

    Yes.  Spatial Studio enables you to export results as CSV (for use as a DV dataset) and GeoJSON (for use as a DV custom map layer).
