Together they have crafted a technically sound and authoritative fountain of information on working with spatial data in the Oracle database. What you'll learn * About new Oracle Spatial features in Oracle Database 11g, including support for the European Petroleum Standards Group (EPSG) data model, the ability to publish to Google Earth, integration with Google Maps, and much more * The use of Oracles built-in SDO_GEOMETRY data type for storing location-based data * How to geocode your data, beginning with postal addresses and ending with SDO_GEOMETRY objects that enable future analysis as well as forming the foundation of working with spatial data within Oracle * How to create and display maps to help you visualize and analyze your geocoded data * About network modeling, which is useful in computing routes, travel distances, and proximity based upon travel time * How to optimize analysis of your spatial data by creating spatial indexes and custom operators Who this book is for Pro Oracle Spatial for Oracle Database 11g is aimed at software developers who wish to develop applications using Oracles extensive and strong support for working with spatial, or geocoded, data.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must a read book 30 Nov 2007
Format:Hardcover
I am currently working on system, the involves Oracle Spatial technology. This book was going to be me first step (almost) towards getting familliar with Spatial. I was little anxious about the level expected from the book's reader: "Intermediate-Advanced"; I haven't exactly felt like "advanced" in Oracle technology. It wasn't so bad; the book is really well written and I had no problems with understanding anything.

The book consists of six parts (including appendices). All the parts cover following subjects:
- Introduction to the technology. Technologies, to be exact; architectures of both, Spatial and Locator options are described -
differences between them.
- Basic concepts - basic know-how. The part, I needed the most met my expectations in 100%. It helped me to start coding really fast.
- Network analysis - more advanced subjects covered, the mostly ARE NOT available in Locator option (one I have access to); network analysis and routing engine, geometry engine. Also indexes and operators are described in one chapter of the book.
- Map Visualisation and creation - a lot of knowlege about MapBuilder, MapViewer and it's API - really helpful for anybody, who needs to visualize maps stored in Spatial.
- Sample applications and case studies - I always look for such chapter in every IT book I read. This is the place, where programmer might find a lot of answers to one's questions. There is also a chapter in this part, the belongs to the category "MUST read" - "Tips, common mistakes and common errors".

There is also sample code available for the readers - to be downloaded from the publisher's web page. It is really helpful to have it while reading the book. There is only one "but" - was, to be exact.

There is also sample code available for the readers - to be downloaded from the publisher's web page. It is really helpful to have it while reading the book. There is only one "but" - was, to be exact. About two weeks after the book had been published, the code wasn't available on the page. At least, I couldn't find it. Now it is possible to download it from here.

The book is really good - "must have" of every Oracle Spatial user. It might be helpful for the beginner and advanced developers as well. I would recommend it to everyone, who needs to get to know Oracle Spatial well. All the 756 pages (excluding index) are filled with reliable knowledge, especially that one of the authors - Ravi Kothuri is a member of Oralce spatial development team, where he works as software architect and team leader.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit underwhelming 13 July 2010
By Sean - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book has some good stuff and it is great that this book exists but the value for the size and cost is not there. You can read 50 pages and learn one new thing that you cannot pickup by using the tools. I expected more on tuning and understanding of the indexer but not great for that.
3.0 out of 5 stars Needs Proof-Reading! 19 Mar 2014
By Bruce D. Dudley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Bought the print version and have only gotten 30 pages into it. The pages are out of order! There are missing pages! Come on, People. You can do better than that.
5.0 out of 5 stars This book is da bomb! 27 Mar 2011
By Frederick Couch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I cannot say enough about this book. I got it for half price brand new from Amazon, but I would have paid the entire $85 bucks for it anyway. There is a lot of information here that is practical, not just theoretical. Anyone working in Oracle Spatial needs this book, for sure.
5.0 out of 5 stars The best I've seen 24 Nov 2008
By Miles Jordan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is the best that I've seen of its kind. It covers just about every aspect of Oracle Spatial, from spatial metadata right through to indexing and querying. It contains many quality examples that are easy to follow if you already have a simple understanding of the concepts behind spatial information.

It paid for itself in the first weekk of having it.

Recommended for everyone that uses Oracle Spatial 10g onwards.
