Microsoft Whitepaper – Introduction to Spatial Coordinate Systems — Flat Maps for a Round Planet

Isaac Kunen blog’s about the first spatial whitepaper Microsoft has released.

Introduction to Spatial Coordinate Systems: Flat Maps for a Round Planet

Says Isaac: “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.” Yea so it isn’t exactly new material for spatial folks, but hey it might come in handy one day and it is very well written. Definitely worth bookmarking.

Microsoft is new to the spatial world, so maybe they didnt get everything right.
