In particular, Chapters 8 and 9 cover spatial operators and functions that make it possible to cluster some of the steps in the example into single queries, making the process much simpler and more efficient. Storing Spatial Data in a Database Looking at vector data, we usually distinguish between the following: • Points (for example, the plots for sale in Figure 1-1), whose spatial description requires only x,y coordinates (or x,y,z if 3D is considered) • Lines (for example, roads), whose spatial description requires a start coordinate, an end coordinate, and a certain number of intermediate coordinates • Polygons (for example, a residential area), which are described by closed lines Figure 1-2 shows an example containing point, line, and polygon data.

With some attributes (area, perimeter, and population). qxd 10/2/07 4:20 PM CHAPTER Page 3 1 Spatial Information Management L ocation is an inherent part of business data: organizations maintain customer address lists, own property, ship goods from and to warehouses, manage transport flows among their workforce, and perform many other activities.
