Trying to get started with SQL 2008 and spatial data. Questions RRS feed

  • Question


    1. Where is some sample data at? I cannot find anything anywhere.. Is there a equivalent to AdventureWorks that have geometry data that can be viewed and played with? 


    2. Once you create polygon data what are the main tools people are using to view it? How is it stored? MAP file? SHP file?


    3. Any simple examples someone can recommend? (I am starting a project with VE and MAPDOTNET) I am trying to get a idea how I will go from a WKT data in SQL 2008 to layering it on VE


    4. Can anyone explain the difference between VE and MAPDOTNET? I am told we are using MAPDOTNET but it seems to me that VE does the same kind of things no?
