Prime The Pump: Oracle Spatial, Locator and MapViewer

Looking for ways to cut costs? Discover new revenue potential? Accelerate business processes? Many organizations have a wealth of location-related information that could release a flood of opportunities to achieve these objectives. But how to get started? Don't enterprise location or geospatial initiatives entail a lot of expensive software, specialized training, integration challenges? Not necessarily.

On Thursday May 7 at 11:00AM Pacific time, Directions Media presented a live webinar that shows how easy it can be to prototype and develop location-based applications using technology tools that, in many cases, organizations already have as part of their Oracle Database and Oracle Fusion Middleware environment, such as Oracle Locator, APEX, and MapViewer. Xavier Lopez from Oracle Spatial product management and Steven Pierce from system integration/consulting partner Johnston McLamb discuss approaches for rapidly building prototypes to generate executive buy-in and support for enterprise geospatial projects that can produce immediate benefits.

This is a must-see for anyone interested in tapping the value potential of location intelligence within the enterprise. You can still watch this webinar even if you missed the live event. Play the webinar here.

What are the functions to find the shortest path between two nodes?

Posted by fredrik on June 19, 2009 at 04:41 PM PDT #

Frank, There is a Distance function in Locator: PLSQL function sdo_distance(geom1,geom2,tolerance,unit); See the following link for more information: http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/spatial/htdocs/data_sheet_9i/10g_spatial_locator_ds.html To respond to your more specific question on networks, Oracle Spatial provides a Network Data Model (NDM) capability that includes a function for computing the shortest path between two nodes. This works for networks represented as NDM in the database, and uses the NDM Java API to compute the shortest path. The function is: networkAnalyst.shortestPathDijkstra(startNodeId, endNodeId,networkConstraint); For more information , please see Oracle 11g Spatial manual on Topology and Network Data Model. You can find this and related documents at: http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/spatial/spatial_doc_index.html
