I’m presenting at Gov 2.0 Expo on May 25th:
Since SQL Azure will support the Geospatial types soon, I’m planning on showing a demo that shows what will be possible once it does. For details on the announcement of the upcoming SQL Azure features, see:
As part of my demo preparation, I was looking for some data to use and found this little gem:
“This is a repository for US Census Data for SQL Server 2008 with spatial information. Some of the data that is and will be included will be for states, counties, cities, and zip codes. The project will be updated as the data is available in SQL Server 2008 format.”
I plan on using this project in my demos. I’d love to see you at my workshop at the Gov 2.0 conference!
