Welcome to my first blog effort. Many of you in the spatial world may already know me.  For everyone else, I am the Spatial Program Manager for SQL Server.  I’ve been working in the spatial/GIS field much longer than I wish to admit, with prior engagements at Informix Software and IBM in the recent past.

Between Isaac ( and myself, we should have SQL Server Spatial and related areas of interest pretty well covered.

    Roger Merritt here.

    I am well advanced in porting my adjustment and topological processing software to SQL Server.

    I am getting the odd time-out, and cannot work out who to contact and seek help with.

    So far SQL Server is running quite well, doing all the things I would expect of it.
