Oracle Infinity Streams Release Notes for November 13, 2020
The following enhancement has been made to Oracle Infinity Streams:
Geographical Augmentation Data Update
Infinity's geographical data augmentation service has been updated with the latest data. This means that values of parameters in the “ext.geo.” family may change slightly as new mappings have been added, names of places are updated to reflect changes in the world, and corrections to errors and misspellings in previous data sets have been corrected. These files are regularly updated to ensure that you are operating with the latest information. Since it is possible that the "ext.geo." parameters values can change, you should check any segments or queries you have configured if they are based on specific place names or other geo-data values.
In addition to updating the existing geographical parameter values, the following new parameters are available for use in segments, metrics, and Infinity Streams queries, for example:
