Spatial White Paper: Mapping and Coordinate Systems
I'm mostly recovered from a machine crash---hard drives are the bane of the computer world---and will hopefully get to do a little more blogging soon.
For now, I just want to note that our first spatial white paper just went live. This paper is a bit of an odd duck: it isn't SQL Server, or even Microsoft specific in any way. It's just a little introduction to the use of spatial data.
I hope you find it useful.
