Visualizing Data with Maps in SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services provides many new data visualization features, including support for geospatial visualization. By using this new mapping feature, one can create location-based analytical reports, combine geospatial and analytical data using map layers, and integrate with Bing Maps, among other capabilities. This lab allows one to experience some of these capabilities in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2. Specifically, the exercise in this lab allows one to produce a report for a member of the AdventureWorks sales team that provides insight into the comparative sales volumes of resellers within a specific geographical region in that salesperson's territory.
