On The Map: Oracle Spatial User Conference
By stephen.garth on May 01, 2009
The 2009 Oracle Spatial User Conference was held in Tampa April 23, following GITA's Geospatial Infrastructure Solutions Conference. Attendance was on par with last year's event despite the global economic malaise, with 112 registrants from the United States, Canada, the UK, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Australia, Mexico, Columbia, Brazil, Chile, and Australia. An enthusiastic audience absorbed product presentations from Oracle experts on Oracle Spatial, Locator and MapViewer, and real-world case studies by a wide variety of users of Oracle's spatial and location technology.
