If any of my readers are wondering why I have been so quiet of late, here are the reasons.
Firstly I have been working on a new GeoRaptor release. That release was made a few weeks ago (12th February 2013). A lot of time and effort went into this release. I hope those that use GeoRaptor have found out about the new release and are using it. Don’t forget to register your interest in update notifications on the GeoRaptor website
Application Programming with Oracle Spatial
Last year I was approached by PACKT publishing to write a book on the uses of Oracle Spatial. Initially the book was called Applying and Extending Oracle Spatial, but the latest revision of the titles is something like Application Programming with Oracle Spatial.
While I was scheduled to write the whole book myself, I decided that I could not sustain the lack of income over the writing period. PACKT found a co-author: Siva Ravada who is Development Manager on the Oracle Spatial team.
So far the following chapters have been written and submitted for review:
Wish us luck: writing a book is not easy.
