Microsoft to release their own spatial capability for SQL Server

My friend, Andrew Hallam just pointed out something that I missed. Microsoft is developing a new release of SQL Server that includes capability for “geographic” data.

Note the “geographic” down near the bottom of this press release on Katmai

Also this note on the future version of SQL Server

Supposedly scheduled to ship in 2008 but Microsoft is not great at hitting targets.

I for one will certainly be getting a copy!

BTW I have now started to get some serious PostGIS experience under my belt.

What fun!


Let’s Roll!
