Ed Katibah says that there will be a Webinar next week on loading data into SQL Server Spatial.
One of the most often asked questions about SQL Server Spatial is “How do I load data into the spatial types?”. Safe Software has long provided solutions for this dilemma with their excellent ETL tool, Feature Manipulation Engine (FME). On December 14th, Safe will be presenting an FME Webinar entitled “Practical Techniques for Loading Data into SQL Server”.
Sounds interesting as Esri doesn’t really give you the right tools to load data into SQL Server Spatial like FME does.
