Use DeepEarth with geometry

Jul 9, 2009 at 3:23 PM

I, want to know, if is possible to use DeepEarth, with geometry field, not geography.

I have coordinates in UTM (uso 30).

The first layer, i want to user a map of my State, and the user can't zoom out for this.

All the layers are in  geometries in sqlserver2008.

Can i use DeepEarth in this way?

At this stage no, we are looking at what would be involved to turn off the base layer maps and render vector graphics only but it will always have a projection.

The geometry field in SQL2008 is not a good choice for real world locations, you won't be able to do length and area operations or get accurate intersection results.

If you're just interested in rendering the paths from a SQL2008 geometry then I maybe able to help over the next few weeks, as I'll be doing some complex rendering of multi-polygons and multilines and donuts etc myself. I'm sure the underlying logic and code will be useful for you.

Please let me know if you find any good resources or projects around, sources are very scarse.
