I will be presenting at PDC next week with Ed Katibah and Torsten Grabs on uses of the SQL Server Spatial library (SQLTypes).   The session will be on Tuesday at 12:30pm.   

Title:
Building Location Aware Applications with the SQL Server Spatial Library

Abstract:
Did you know that the new SQL Server 2008 Spatial Types are available in a redistributable library?  This library can be used to build interesting location aware functionality in applications that don’t even connect to a database.  See us build an Excel Add-In for spatial analysis and an application that demonstrates how to spatially-enable the new StreamInsight product.  Hear about what the Spatial Library delivers today and what is coming in future releases.

The session will largely be demos and code walkthroughs with minimal powerpoint slides.

Please stop by if you are attending PDC and share your experiences building location-aware applications using SQL Server 2008.
