Create interactive maps and perform self-service spatial analysis at your fingertips
This session is about getting quickly and easily into working with spatial data. We will show you how to
- load different types of spatial data,
- convert address information into coordinates that can be placed on a map,
- visualize spatial data on maps,
- explore and analyze spatial data,
- and share spatial data or spatial analysis results via REST endpoints.
Using the current version of Oracle Spatial Studio, a free web-based graphical tool for working with spatial data, we walk you through a typical spatial data processing workflow. You do not need coding skills to follow or redo what we present.
At the end of this session, we also present new features of Spatial Studio 22.3.
