How to store an arc in Katmai Spatial RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    Is it possible to store an Arc in Katmai ? Are all Geometry-types available or is only a subset implemented ?

     

    Thanks for clarification,

  • Hi Toni,

     

    Unfortunately you can't directly store an arc in this version.  You can densify it and store a linear approximation.

  • Isaac-
    Are you saying that this is not supported in the beta or not supported in 2008 at all?  If it will not be supported in 2008, then when?  Thanks.

  • Hi Scott,

     

    SQL 2008, beta or RTM, will not have curve support.  This is something that is high on our list of features we would like to support in the future, but I can't make specific promises yet.

     

    FWIW, if you want to lobby for particular features, an effective way to do this is through Connect.  Issues filed there go directly into our bug tracking system, other users can vote on them, and this helps bring visibility to the requests.

     

    Cheers,
