The course extensively covers the concepts and usage of the native data types, functions and operators available in Oracle Spatial for implementing geospatial applications and location-based services.
Using the Oracle Application Server MapViewer, students learn how to render maps and view geospatial data managed by Oracle Spatial or Locator. Students also get introduced to basics of geocoding and routing concepts.
Demonstrations and hands-on practice reinforce the fundamental concepts.
The Oracle Spatial: Essentials course is applicable to both 10g and 11g audiences.
