Book: “Applying And Extending Oracle Spatial”


On Sunday 30th September 2013 a book I designed and then co-wrote with Dr Siva Ravada (Director Development, Oracle Spatial) was released by PACKT publishing.

The book is called Applying and Extending Oracle Spatial.

The book is also available at Amazon

A lot of the ideas I have expressed on this website over the years form the basis for some of what is in the book.

If you want to get a hold of re-written versions of my GEOM etc packages, then consider purchasing a copy of the book and you will then be able to download the T_VERTEX, T_VECTOR (now called T_SEGMENT) and T_GEOMETRY (and supporting) object PL/SQL source code.

That code has been updated and added to many, many times since (with a port to SQL Server Spatial).
If you have a copy of the book and would like an update, contact me directly and I will make a version available to you.

Feel free to contact me with any questions that result from the book or the source code.
