The uses of spatial data are numerous, e.g. a GPS.
or the location of every fuel station that supplies 50ppm diesel fuel

Sure, spatial data is useful... so are duct tape, lawn mowers, and pinking shears -- none of which have anything to do with SQL Server. Parshv's question stands.

True
Just as much as asking a question regarding the amount of parsecs between earth and vega (which would require storing 4th dimension spatial data)

Of course the answer to the question "What is a Sea Mile...".

It has been a long time since the two were seen as equivalent, if they ever truly were.

...classic seafaring food, biscuits.

But seriously, the spatial questions tend to be. Some of the questions/answers are even ambiguous or more than one answer can apply. However, such occurances are rare and I am not paying a professional company money to test my knowledge (albeit a site run professionally). So I think, in keeping with the thread's theme, I'll accept the rough with the smooth!!!

I had asked the same question for previous question on spatial data question. Go through the discussion.
If I am not using spatial data ( well most of us would never use it in future also ) that does not mean its not worth a question.

It's a bit of trivia related to spatial information. If you work with data on the oceans, this can be valuable. It's not something most of us will deal with, but now it might stick in your head.
