From Impaired to Insightful: Analysis with Geospatial Data
Julie Koesmarno, Senior Program Manager Microsoft
Geospatial reporting is one of the hottest trends in analytics right now, helping make business reports more insightful and engaging. Region-based reporting can be transformed from boring grids to visually interactive maps. This session will describe how to embark upon self-service and mobile business intelligence solutions that are available within the Microsoft BI stack for analytical geospatial reporting.
You’ll learn the basics of geographical data, including GIS, longitude-latitude coordinates, and free-form text. Using these different data types, we’ll discuss SQL Server Reporting Services 2012, Power View, and Excel 2013 tools that can leverage this insightful analysis. Finally, and most importantly, this session will get you started in the essential techniques for delivering geospatial reports that tell meaningful and engaging stories for business users.
