I have been following this series of articles since the first article was published on SQLServerCentral. The author, Arshad Ali, has written several articles on SQL Server 2008 T-SQL Enhancements. The latest of the five articles was one of the featured articles on Monday, August 31st (www.sqlservercentral.com). Arshad not only provides a very extensive list of the enhancements, but he also provides a detailed explanation of each topic and provides examples.
The latest installment in the series highlights the Spatial Data Type. Since I work for an outdoor advertising company, geospatial data is crucial to our daily data needs. As a result, I have begun researching and testing certain aspects of this feature. Arshad provides a few examples that I will definitely add to my list of items to test. Take a look at the entire series I am sure you will find it worthwhile.
Talk to you soon
