The Excel Spatial Spreadsheet (Part Deux)
I hope everyone had a great holiday and that Santa was good to you. My kids made out like troopers this year with the grandparents buying them a Wii. Yes I know I work for Microsoft -- but we already have an XBOX 360 – actually we have 2 of them but that’s another story. I probably should feel more...

Introducing the Excel Spatial Spreadsheet – Building an Excel Add-In for doing Spatial Analysis and Spatial Operations in .NET.
Good Evening, I sit down to write this blog article on the plane on my way to LA in preparation for tomorrow’s presentation at PDC on the same subject. In my last article I described the ability to leverage the hard work that the SQL Server team put into building a spatial library for your own .NET...

Watch out for gotcha with missing VC++ runtime dlls when deploying .NET applications that leverage the new SQL Server Spatial Types libraries.
In my previous blog post I discussed the ability to leverage the SQL Server type library in your own .NET applications. The article showed how to create a simple console application that calculates some areas for different shapes and how to create these shapes either from a text representation like WKT...

Why I should have paid more attention in geometry class: Embedding the new SQL Server Spatial CLR types and functionality directly into your own .NET applications.
In SQL Server 2008 we introduced the ability to store spatial objects as columns within a database through the Geometry and Geography types as well as the ability to perform efficient query operations against those columns through the use of a new Spatial index. These data types were implemented as...

Videos from Tech-Ed: Building Location-Aware Services with SQL Server 2008 Spatial - WiE Demo and Code Walkthroughs
It has been way too long since I’ve blogged. I have no (good) excuse. I had the opportunity to attend and present at last week’s Tech-Ed conference and had a great time meeting customers and getting feedback and suggestions on SQL server and our developer tools. Our session on WiE (Building location...

As this is my first CodePlex project I expect that I may have forgotten some steps so please let me know of any issues you experience and I will work to resolve them quickly. You can find the project at: http://www...

Part VIII: WiE uses SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) to synchronize SQL Data Services (SDS) with SQL Server 2008.
In the previous article we covered using the use of INSERT triggers along with the new Spatial data-type support in SQL Server 2008 to implement “spatial rules” for our location-based service. All that remained was to implement a mechanism to make all the location data hosted by SQL Data Services visible...

Part V: Keeping WiE Mobile Client in sync with the Cloud, a first pass at synchronization.
The Implementation of WiEModelWithLocalCache As we discussed in the previous articles, the data layer for the WiE Mobile Client is made up of “providers” that each implement the IWiEModel interface and work together to implement support for the occasionally disconnected mobile scenario. Over the past...

Part IV: WiE reaches for the Cloud...Implementing the SQL Server Data Services (SSDS) data model for the WiE Mobile Client.
The Implementation of WiERemoteModelSSDSForMobile The WiERemoteModel expects to store and retrieve data from SQL Server Data Services (SSDS). I won’t include the entire implementation of the WiERemoteModelSSDSForMobile in-line as we plan to eventually provide the entire project for download but I...

Part III: Implementing the SQL Server Compact local Model for the WiE Mobile Client.
In the first article in this series I introduced the concept for the WiE Community, a mobile and location aware social networking community. In last week's article we covered the high level architecture and the design for the WiE Mobile Client. In this week's article I'll go into the next level of detail...

What is WiE? What happens when you put Windows Mobile, SQL Server Compact, SQL Server Data Services, Sync Framework, WPF and SQL Server 2008 together?
Before joining Microsoft I had started my own company to market a software as a service offering to the specialty trade contractor segment of the construction industry. Our service was called JIM (Job Intelligence Manager) and was a mobile project management application that enabled contractors to report...
