Sneak Preview: Graph Cloud Services and Spatial Console for Database Cloud
Cloud services change the way we provision, deploy and perform analytic application development. They can simplify the development and deployment experience and make it possible for developers and data scientists to use analytics in which they had little or no expertise.  

Two new planned cloud services from Oracle for spatial and graph analysis offer low-code and no-code capabilities. The spatial cloud services include no-code spatial analysis, automated geo-enrichment of data, visual map analysis, and simplified spatial application creation for analysts and developers. The graph cloud services provide an analyst and developer studio with dozens of prebuilt, low-code graph algorithms with wizards to automate modeling, loading, and visualizing graph data and analysis results.

These mapping and graph analysis services offer over hundreds of geospatial and graph analysis functions.  Data access will be available through rich APIs, along with SQL-based spatial and graph query languages.

Powerful Spatial Features You Never Knew Existed in Oracle Spatial and Graph
Even expert users may not know some of the powerful functions available in Oracle Spatial and Graph, or how to optimize common spatial requirements. I often find myself working with customers that implement spatial requirements the way they had to with other spatial solutions, instead of the best way they can by leveraging powerful unique capabilities available in Oracle Spatial and Graph. Many times the reason is "I didn't know that existed". This session will cover how Oracle Spatial and Graph natively integrates with key Oracle Database features such as transparent data encryption (TDE), redaction, partitioning (all types), and also powerful nearest neighbor strategies, new spatial functions introduced in 12c, as well as an overview of spatial functions you never knew existed. Customer use cases and code examples will be included. This session is intended for a technical audience, but others will also gain useful insights on the powerful capabilities of Oracle Spatial and Graph.

Feeding a Hungry World: Using Oracle Products to Ensure Global Food Security
The International Production Assessment Division (IPAD) of the USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service predicts two of the leading economic indicators: Global Agricultural Output and US Agricultural Output.
The Division uses a convergence of evidence approach that incorporates observation and ground truth but is also heavily dependent on remotely sensed satellite (raster) data.
IPAD’s approach has been to unpack rasters and store them as vectors in database rows and columns and then to create derivative products. Decades of product development were built on this model.
Vectorizing rasters is slow and wasteful. With pixel sizes decreasing from 25 km to 10 km for IPAD's main data streams in 2018, data size and CPU usage are expected to grow by a factor of 2.5.
IPAD will stop preparing rolled up answers to questions that may never be asked. This presentation will focus on the use of Oracle technologies including the native SDO_GEORASTER type, Columnar In Memory, and the Exadata.

3D Spatial Utility Database at CALTRANS
The California Department of Transportation (CALTRANS) was awarded a federal grant to create a spatial database for the purpose of collecting utility data and locations. Oracle 12c was chosen as the spatial database software and Bentley Map Enterprise V8i (SELECTseries4) was chosen as the software to interface with Oracle 12c. Autodesk Civil 3D and Arc GIS will eventually link to the database.
The multitenant architecture of Oracle 12c is being utilized; pluggable databases were created to separate data by CA Coordinate Systems (CCS). Within the pluggable database, tablespaces were created to separate the CCS zones.
 It is essential that 3D geometry is stored and the Spatial Reference System Identifier (SRID) value be assigned to the Oracle geometry so that coordinates can be re-projected from one coordinate system to another. Compound Coordinate Systems were created.
Creating and maintaining a utility database with a standardized set of data attributes will ensure that the utility infrastructure can be accurately identified during project planning and for conflict resolution during design and construction. This system can easily be adapted to other disciplines.

HOL: Property Graph 101 in Oracle Database for the Completely Clueless
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Oracle Database 12c now includes property graphs - a powerful feature that goes beyond relational, to analyze relationships in big data, such as finding the most influential people in a social network, discovering patterns of fraud within financial transaction data, or recommending products based on what similar customers are buying.
Don’t have the slightest clue on how to get started with and use property graphs? Good news! If you can form a complete sentence (coffee allowed) then you can do this! This hands on lab by Vlamis will show you exactly how to create, load and use property graphs on the Oracle Database. We will cover how to create a property graph using Java or PLSQL, how to load data into a property graph from existing database tables, how to create an in-memory instance of a property graph, how to run algorithms such as page rank against a property graph, how to use PGQL (a sql like language for property graphs) to query a graph and ways to visualize graph data.

In order to complete the hands on lab you will need to bring your own laptop with VNC Viewer installed (https://www.realvnc.com/en/connect/download/viewer/) so you can access the virtual machines we have set up for the lab.

Analyze the Global Knowledge Graph with Visualization, Cloud, & Spatial Tech
Every 15 minutes the world’s news is captured into the Global Knowledge Graph. The data set contains nearly a trillion sentiment snapshots and more than 1.5 billion location references. 
Oracle ingested the data set on the Bare Metal Cloud to create a data warehouse. The project was designed to meet the needs of big data users, such as cyber threat and defense intelligence analysts. They require analysis of the connections between people, places, events, content and sentiment embedded in traditional data sources. They also need a pipeline and robust visualizations to filter the data, carve out relevant subsets and save the results to a property graph database for further analysis.
This session will describe the challenges, complexities, and technologies used to create a 35TB data warehouse, and filter, visualize, analyze and write results back, with a single click, to the Oracle Spatial and Graph database using Tom Sawyer Perspectives.

Follow the Money: A Graph Model for Monitoring Bank Transactions
Examining the flow of bank transactions is key to analyzing financial operations such as fraud detection, client segmentation, personalized offers, risk modeling, client retention, etc. In particular, bank analysts are challenged to understand the behavior of companies that make large bank deposits and then transfer significant sums – to entities both inside and outside the bank’s network. They are also challenged by the limitation of relational and traditional BI tools to effectively model and analyze the money flows between a customer, its bank, and external 3rd parties. Banco Galicia has addressed this challenge by modeling money flows as a complex graph of transactions. The result is a powerful approach to support the analysis and visualization of money flows across a large network of bank-affiliated transactions. This session will desdescribe how Banco Galicia uses Oracle Big Data Spatial and Graph to understand the topology and behavior of money transfers.

Graph Modeling and Analysis for Complex Automotive Data Management
Mazda is an automotive manufacturer that routinely needs to link and analyze data from different sources like production, sales, inventory, and logistics. Most manufacturers use a bill of materials (BoM) to provide a master system for parts and their relationships. However, BoM developers have long realized the difficulties of modeling the complex relationships between components using a RDBMS. Moreover, BoM data must also align with master (or transaction) data from disparate IT systems. This paper highlights a novel approach to apply a graph database to create a flexible BoM of interconnected auto components. This system uses the property graph database and in-memory analytics in Oracle Spatial and Graph. We found the graph data model to be more effective at modeling, querying, and visualizing complex relationships in our data, while also integrating with different production systems. We will also share performance results of complicated pattern matching queries using PGQL._x000D_

Serving Ireland's Authoritative Geospatial Data as Linked Data
Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi) is Ireland's national mapping agency and is charged with managing authoritative geospatial information for the country. OSi has developed a complex relation database model to store this information called Prime2, using the Oracle 12c suite. To make some of this data more readily accessible to third parties, OSi has adopted Linked Data practices to do so. Through work between OSi and the ADAPT Centre in Trinity College Dublin, a Linked Data platform (data.geohive.ie) has been developed to publish this data. The platform currently relies on multiple tools for transforming relational data to RDF, storage, querying (GeoSPARQL over geospatial information), a Linked Data front-end and a back-end tool to reduce server load. The next design of the platform will utilise more functionality of the Oracle 12c suite to make access more efficient. This presentation will discuss how we worked with OSi to make available their Oracle based geospatial data as Linked Data.

Publication of Statistical Linked Open Data in Japan with Oracle RDF graph
The National Statistics Center of Japan is responsible for managing and publishing a wide variety of national statistical data on its e-Stat portal site. The Center works with national and local agencies to make statistics widely accessible to government and the public. Inconsistent metadata definitions from the myriad of data sources made it difficult to align data semantics to support effective search and discovery.
To break through this problem, the Center developed a Linked Open Data
(LOD) platform in 2016, which publishes Japan statistics such as the population census and consumer price index.
This platform was built using the RDF graph capability in Oracle Database Spatial and Graph, and configured on Exadata and Oracle's SPARQL endpoint service.
To improve provisioning and manageability, the platform was migrated to the Oracle Public Cloud.
This move freed up limited resources to focus on developing new services, such as spatial search on sub-regional geometries using GeoSPARQL.

Discovering Tax Fraud in Florence, Italy with a Semantic Graph Database

One of the most cost-effective activities Italian town halls are supposed to carry out is tax evaders detection. That is why the city of Florence asked Evodevo to develop the Florence Fraud Detection System, a Decision Support System to help municipalities employees in automating the detection process.

The Florence Fraud Detection System consists of several databases merging into an Oracle 12c db with Spatial & Graph option with a description logic rules layer on top. The rules were derived from a study about the tax fraud domain in the specific section of Italian citizens resident abroad, in order to classify the citizens of Florence into different levels of suspiciousness. The system includes a Joseki SPARQL endpoint customization with pre-written semantic queries.

The session will consist of: an introduction to the context; a technical overview; a system demonstration.

Analyzing Blockchain and Bitcoin Transaction Data as Graph
Blockchain technology and Bitcoin will potentially revolutionize business transactions. Blockchain offers a robust, decentralized platform for privacy and trust. It underlies the digital crypto-currency Bitcoin, which can be exchanged freely and anonymously, without a central authority. Bitcoin transactions - recorded publicly, and growing at a rate of 100,000's of transactions per day - provide an invaluable dataset to gain insight into the behavior of digital currency and the underlying Blockchain technology. Blocks, transactions with potential multiple inputs and outputs, and flow of bitcoins between addresses, form a sophisticated real-time graph. This talk details a pipeline used to gather bitcoin transaction data and analyze it with powerful graph cloud database technologies.

Ingesting streaming data into Graph database
This talk presents the experience of a customer project where we built a stream-based ingestion into a graph database. It is one thing to load the graph first and then querying it. But it is another story if the data to be added to the graph is constantly streaming in, while querying it. Data is easy to add, if each single message ends up as a new vertex in the graph. But if a message consists of hierarchical information, it most often means creating multiple new vertices as well adding edges to connect this information. What if a node already exists in the graph? Do we create it again or do we rather add edges which link to the existing node? Creating multiple nodes for the same real-life entity is not the best choice, so we have to check for existence first. We end up requiring multiple operations against the graph, which demonstrated to be a bottle neck. This talk presents the implementation of an ingestion pipeline and the design choice we made to improve performance.

The Role of Master Data Management (MDM) for Data Centric Automation Strategies
In the engineering and construction industry, master data is key to data centric execution strategies for data exchange and integration. Innovative architectures for the digitization and deployment of master data support engineering information from its conceptual 2D and 3D design phases to their downstream uses in procurement, scheduling and construction. Building Information Management (BIM) hierarchical classification standards and other master data play a key role in the automated transformation and normalization of BIM 3-dimensional model records and their integration with other business system data. This presentation will identify some of the key master data needed to support the engineering automation processes for the exchange and integration of 3D model data in an Oracle Spatial and Graph data environment, and the data dictionary-driven architectures that help leverage master data as part of data centric innovation strategies.

Measuring Published Citation using Graph Modeling and Analysis
Research organizations, along with their funding agencies, routinely need to measure the performance of their organization. The application of scientific citation indexing is a widely used metric for evaluating the success of a research organization. This paper highlights the novel use of graph modeling, analytics and visualization to improve this metric of scientific performance. Our approach models an index of published scientific publication and citations as a connected graph. We used the Oracle in-memory graph analytics engine (PGX) to carry out graph analysis, statistical inferencing, and visual exploratory analysis. Our results illustrate how these graph modeling combined with statistical analysis, such as stochastic block model (SBM), can improve the measurement and evaluation of scientific research.

Spatial Analytics with Spark & Big Data
Sensor feeds and social media data contain much latent location information such as addresses, place names, and GPS coordinates. How can you uncover those location relationships and patterns for better business insights? How can build applications to track moving objects in real time? Learn about spatial technologies for Spark, Hadoop, and NoSQL, and how to build analytic applications using Java. Oracle Big Data Spatial and Graph offers a set of analytic algorithms, services, and data models that support big data workloads. Data scientists and developers can be more productive by using dozens of prebuilt spatial functions and services. Users can harmonize data and group results based on spatial relationships, track moving objects, and apply spatial services to cleanse, filter, normalize, and process geospatial data sets, and easily perform spatial queries with new Hive and Spark SQL features.

Using GeoJSON in the Oracle Database
Location and other geographical information is traditionally stored in Oracle databases using specialized data types, such as the SDO_GEOMETRY type. That data type is powerful and flexible, but can be difficult to use. A modern alternative is to use a JSON-based encoding, called GeoJSON instead. GeoJSON is a lightweight format suited to data exchange and transfer, popular for reading and publishing spatial data on the Web, in Big Data, and for the Internet of Things.

This session will explain the way GeoJSON encodes a variety of geographical objects, from simple points to complex multi-polygonal structures. It will also explain how those structures can be indexesd, and how they can be used in spatial analytics, in isolation or in conjunction with classic SDO_GEOMETRY types.
Finally we will show how the GeoJSON objects can be displayed on a map.
