Benefits of the 12c SDO_POINTINPOLYGON Function

One of the great advantages of the 12c feature SDO_POINTINPOLYGON is that it does not require a spatial index. This allows us to mix in external tables and global temporary tables. Check out the blog post https://blogs.oracle.com/oraclespatial/entry/benefits_of_the_12c_sdo for some experiences we have had at Neustar and some tips for utilizing global temporary tables and the SDO_POINTINPOLYGON function. The post includes a sample script you can use to quickly generate random points around a sample area and test drive SDO_POINTINPOLYGON queries in your environment.

Big Data Spatial and Big Data Graph and Summit ’16 Slides in the OTN!!

On Tuesday, the slides from the Oracle Spatial and Graph Summit at BIWA 2016 were posted to the Oracle Technology Network (OTN), which you can now access from the link below, with over 25 presentations and use cases covering Spatial and Graph features in the Database and Big Data platforms.

Oracle Spatial and Graph Summit at BIWA 2016  - Agenda and Presentation slides:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/options/spatialandgraph/learnmore/oracle-spatial-summit-at-biwa-2016-2881713.html

For those of you interested in Big Data Spatial and Big Data Graph, there are at least nine Big Data presentations, plus two hands-on labs from the conference as well.  This is a hot topic in GIS communities now, as it not only offers a way to optimally handle unstructured and social data in a HADOOP or NoSQL database environments, but to analyze, connect and even graph your sensor, social media feeds or raster imagery Big Data in new and exciting ways!  For those of you looking for some hands-on experience, you can supplement the OTN Big Data Lite VM with the data, slides and hands-on lab materials from the Oracle Spatial and Graph Summit at BIWA 2016 as well.  I attended both of these hands-on labs at the conference and have since downloaded the thirteen (13) Big Data Lite VM files, which are around 24.5 GB.  The additional Applying Spatial Analysis to Big Data zip file contains the data used for the hands-on lab and requires only an additional 28.2 MB of storage.

Hands On Lab materials for Big Data Spatial and Big Data Graph (includes workbooks, data file downloads, and presentation slides):

Tips for Switching Between Geodetic and Mercator Projections

If you work with multiple coordinate projections and have a need to seamless switch between one projection to another, then I recommend taking a look at the blog post (https://blogs.oracle.com/oraclespatial/entry/tips_for_switching_between_geodetic). In the post, I share some of the experiences we at Neustar have had with dealing with the geodetic and Mercator projection. I also go over some details to pay attention to and some tips to maximize performance and storage. Let us know if you also work with multiple coordinate projections and if you have any experiences, feedback or tips that may be helpful to share.

Some session highlights include:

Sessions on Spatial and Graph Features and Best Practices 

Oracle Spatial and Graph: New Features for 12.2 (Siva Ravada, Oracle): Learn about the latest spatial analysis capabilities and performance advancements coming in release 12.2 for Oracle Spatial and Graph. 

Best Practices for Developing Geospatial Apps for the Cloud (Nick Salem, Neustar): Learn best practices and techniques for building robust, scalable, cloud-based applications using Oracle Database 12c Spatial and Graph, Partitioning, RAC, Advanced Security, and Oracle Weblogic 12c.

3D Data Management - From Point Cloud to City Model (Hans Viehmann, Oracle): 3D city models are serving a variety of purposes today, from city marketing to the determination of optimal locations for photovoltaic panels to simulations of noise emission patterns. The development of large 3D city models has become economically viable after the cost of data acquisition - be it through laser scanning or image matching techniques - has gone down significantly in recent years. What remains though, is the requirement to deal with large volumes of the different types of 3D data, including 3D point clouds, TINs or 3D solids.

Register Soon!
Regular pricing for the Summit ends at midnight on Jan. 5, so sign up now! (After that date, late fees go into effect.) Sign up here: http://www.ioug.org/p/cm/ld/&fid=982.
