Spatial data powers some of the world’s most innovative apps and services, letting you answer questions like, “Where’s the nearest gas station?” and “How long will it take for my ride-sharing vehicle to arrive?” and even, “Where can I catch a Pokémon?”

CockroachDB is the first SQL database to build spatial data functionality from the ground up for a distributed environment. This means you can now effortlessly scale your spatial data and have the confidence it will survive outages.
In this episode of the Cockroach hour, we will cover:
  • Geometry and Geography types
  • Spatial Indexing
  • PostGIS-compatible built-ins and functions
SIDEBAR: The Cockroach Hour
A regular discussion with experts on key topics facing organizations as we all transition to a new digital norm. You bring the questions and we’ll provide experts and a lighthearted and hopefully valuable hour of discussion.
