Abstract

The main goal of this chapter is to discuss the usage of spatial data within enterprise as well as smaller line-of-business applications. In particular, this chapter proposes new methodologies for storing and manipulating vague spatial data and provides methods for visualizing both crisp and vague spatial data. It also provides a comparison between different types of spatial data, mainly 2D crisp and vague spatial data, and their respective fields of application. Additionally, it compares existing commercial relational database management systems, which are the most widely used with enterprise applications, and discusses their deficiencies in terms of spatial data support. A new spatial extension package called Spatial Extensions (SPEX) is provided in this chapter and is tested on a software prototype.
