Here is a spotlight on some training sessions that may be of interest, offered at LI/Oracle Spatial Summit in DC, May 19-21. www.locationintelligence.net/dc/agenda .
Preparing for the Oracle Spatial Certification Exam
Steve Pierce, Think Huddle & Albert Godfrind, Oracle
Learn valuable strategies and review technical topics with the experts who developed the exam – and achieve your Oracle Spatial Specialist Certification with the most efficient effort. This session will enable you to master difficult topics (such as GeoRaster, 3D/LIDAR support, topology) quickly through clear examples and demos. Sample questions and exam topic breakdown will be covered. Individual certifications can also apply to requirements for organizations seeking Oracle PartnerNetwork Specialized status.
Offered as both a Monday technical workshop (preregistration required), and Wednesday overview session.
Content in this session is only available at the Oracle Spatial Summit.
The performance debate is over: Spatial 12c Performance / Customer Benchmark Track
Hear the results of customer benchmarks testing the performance of the 12c release of Spatial and Graph – with results up to 300 times faster. In this track, Nick Salem of Neustar and Steve Pierce of Think Huddle will share benchmarks with actual performance results already realized.
Customers can now address the largest geospatial workloads and see performance increases of 50 to 300 times for common vector analysis operations. With just a small set of configuration changes – and no changes to application code – applications can realize these significant performance improvements. You’ll also learn tips for accelerating performance and running benchmarks with your applications on your systems.
Effectively Utilize LIDAR Data In Your Business Processes
Daniel Geringer, Oracle
Many organizations collect large amounts of LIDAR, or point cloud data for more precise asset management. ROI of the high costs associated with this type of data acquisition is frequently compromised by the underutilization of the data. This session focuses on ways to leverage Oracle Engineered Systems to highly compress and seamlessly store LIDAR data and effectively search it spatially in its compressed form to enhance your business process. Topics covered included loading, compressing, pyramiding, searching and generation of derivative products such as DEMs, TINs, and Contours.
Many other technical sessions and tracks will cover spatial technologies with depth and breadth.
Customers including Garmin, Burger King, US Census Bureau, US DOJ, and more will also present use cases using MapViewer & Spatial in location intelligence/BI, transportation, land management and more.
