Geospatial analysis is used in almost
every field you can think of from medicine, to defense, to farming. etc.
is an approach to use statistical analysis and other informational
engineering to data which has a geographical or geospatial aspect. And
this typically involves applications capable of geospatial display and
processing to get a compiled and useful data.
SAP HANA Spatial comprises types, methods, and constructors you can use
to access, manipulate, and analyze spatial data. You can apply the full spectrum of
analytical and visualization techniques that are available within
todays geospatial software and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
By combining the Spatial engine with other HANA engines like Predictive, Planning, and Text Search etc. customers can apply complex algorithms to the combined data set and derive deep insights.
SAP HANA also delivers Nokia mapping services
as part of the HANA Spatial features and this can be used to create
apps using HANA XS engine through which Nokia mapping services can be
called using the Nokia API.
Spatial data is loaded into HANA you can create or extend HANA models
(Analytic, Calc Views) using HANA Studio and make these models available
for analysis and visualization thru SAP Lumira or custom HTML5
applications. SAP HANA SQL script has been extended to support the
Spatial SQL MM Standards for storing and accessing Geo-spatial data.
Geo-Technologies and the Environment
Geospatial Technologies such as Spatial Processing with SAP HANA and
Climate Change describes various approaches from different countries on
how to use geospatial technologies to help solving climate change
It also details how different geospatial technologies (remote
sensing, Geographical Information System ) can be used to help with
climate monitoring and modeling, how to work with them and what to be
