SQL Anywhere 12.0.0 (Français) » SQL Anywhere Server - Spatial Data Support


Getting started with spatial data

This section introduces SQL Anywhere spatial support and explains its purpose, describes the supported data types, and explains how to generate and analyze spatial data.

The spatial data documentation assumes you already have some familiarity with spatial reference systems and with the spatial data you intend to work with. If you do not, links to additional reading material can be found here: Recommended reading on spatial topics.


Spatial data support for 32-bit Windows and 32-bit Linux requires a CPU that supports SSE2 instructions. This support is available with Intel Pentium 4 or later (released in 2001) and AMD Opteron or later (released in 2003).
