VBUG Bracknell: Microsoft Virtual Earth - Beyond Earth Viewing

Tue, 7 Apr 2009, 18:30 - 21:00 (Add to calendar) GMT
Bracknell Borough Council (Function Room) , Bracknell, GB

Join us for an evening in Bracknell where our guest speaker Johannes Kebeck will be giving a presentation on Microsoft Virtual Earth.

Since the so called ‘Earth Viewers’ and ‘Virtual Globes’ entered the market in 2005, interest in location-enabled applications has exploded. From mash-ups and community websites the wave swapped quickly over to more business relevant applications.

Today you find Virtual Earth in locator-type applications, fleet- or asset-management, business intelligence and even risk or disaster management applications across all industries.

The presentation will: * Introduce Microsoft Virtual Earth and its background; * Give examples of various implementations; * Demonstrate combinations with other products and services such as Windows Azure or SQL Server 2008. * Make a deep technical dive on some specific features

Johannes Kebeck covers Microsoft’s geospatial technologies and supports customers and partners in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He is currently based in Reading, UK and has over 13 years experience in the GI/GIS market. In October 2004 Johannes joined Microsoft in Germany working within the Enterprise Product Group and in 2005 he joined the Virtual Earth team. Before specialising on Microsoft’s geospatial products and services, he had experience with various GIS, spatial databases, relational database management systems, workflow management, collaboration products and IT security.
