18c Spatial New Features Update
Feedback form is now closed.
With the Oracle Database 18c release, Oracle Spatial and Graph brings new performance and usability features across the board to complement features introduced in Oracle Database 12c Release 2. This release also makes it easy to develop spatial applications in Oracle Cloud. Spatial now supports distributed transactions, making it easy to develop web applications that update spatial data.  More geometry types can be converted between SDO_GEOMETRY and JSON formats, and Oracle REST Data Services supports spatial queries.  Sharding support (introduced in 12.2) is now extended to spatial tables and indexes. Web services are enhanced to support multiple data sources so that a single web service instance can serve data from different database schemas, and CSW 2.0.2 ISO metadata application profiles are supported. GeoRaster now supports many GDAL functions via external procedures.  
Learn what’s new with the leading spatial platform that’s fast, cloud-ready, and developer-friendly.
