  4. 4. What is spatial data?
  5. 5. Creating map reports in Report Builder 3.0
  6. 6. Data from the cloud (optional)</li></li></ul><li>Introduction<br />Report Builder 3.0:Where are we in the SQL Server BI stack?<br />Development<br /><ul><li>BIDS (Visual Studio)
  7. 7. Report Builder (online)</li></ul>Both produce .rdl files (XML)<br />- According to Microsoft -<br />This updated ad-hoc reporting client accelerates report creation, collaboration and consistency by allowing users to create and share report components that can be accessed via the shared component library and by enabling the rapid assembly of comprehensive business reports using these shared components.<br />

Data from the cloud (optional)</li></li></ul><li>What is spatial data?<br />- According to Microsoft -<br />Microsoft SQL Server 2008 delivers comprehensive spatial support that enables organizations to seamlessly consume, use, and extend location-based data through spatial-enabled applications which ultimately helps end users make better decisions.<br />Features:<br /><ul><li>Use the new geography data type to store geodetic spatial data and perform operations on it
  12. 12. Use the new geometry data type to store planar spatial data and perform operations on it</li></ul>geodetic<br />planar<br />
