COM.* 2014 Oracle Workshop:Learn to Build an Analytics Solution with Oracle's Spatial Tools and Platform

Washington, DC – July 14, 2014 The pre-registration of Oracle workshop at COM.* 2014 conference is available now. The title of Oracle workshop is "Learn to Build an Analytics Solution with Oracle's Spatial Tools and Platform". Whether it's marketing analysis to send customers mailers from their closest store, or to find the closest repair depots to a portion of rail that needs to be serviced, very often the result is based on drive time analysis, not as the crow flies analysis. Learn how to optimize strategies and solve these network based requirements, without computing every possible point to point drive time calculation. This hands-on workshop will walk you through building an end to end application that maximizes performance, and optimizes hardware resources to solve massive drive time analysis requirements. The application will be based on Oracle Spatial and Graph's geocoder, router, and network graph technologies, and on Oracle Fusion Middleware MapViewer.

Attendees will be expected to provide their own laptops; the virtual machine will be available for download in advance of the workshop. Attendance is limited - preregistration is required.


Attendees should have some knowledge of Java, SQL and PL/SQL. The workshop will use an Oracle Virtual Box Linux based image pre-configured with the required Oracle software and HERE sample data for San Francisco. The image will be available for download by attendees prior to the workshop. It uses Oracle Enterprise Linux so some experience with invoking scripts and using text editors on Linux (vi or gedit) will be beneficial.

Hardware and software requirements:

  •  Laptop (quad-core preferred)
  • Virtual Box 4.2 or later (
  • Minimum 8Gb RAM (16Gb preferred): The VM requires 6GB and two processors to run.
  • Minimum 100Gb free disk space (the image is approximately a 17Gb download that requires an additional 60 Gb of disk during import)

Speaker Bio: Daniel Geringer, Senior Manager, Software Development, Oracle

Daniel Geringer graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics and Statistics from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1987. He worked at General Dynamics Electric Boat Division, a US defense contractor, from 1988 through 1993 as a senior software engineer. While at General Dynamics, he completed his Master of Science degree in Computer Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1992. In 1993, he started working for The Analytic Sciences Corporation (TASC) as a senior software engineer. Through research and development projects at TASC, he began to explore and help solve customer GIS interoperability issues. In 1994, Geringer was exposed to an Alpha version of Oracle Spatial. This brought him to Oracle in 1995, as a key member of the Oracle Spatial development team. His primary tasks include working with GIS and Image Processing partners to help integrate Oracle's Spatial technologies, test and develop Oracle Spatial enhancements, work with customers, provide customer/partner feedback to the Oracle development team, write material for Oracle University (OU) spatial courses and help train OU instructors to teach Oracle's spatial technologies.

About COM.* Conference

COM.* 2014 has expanded to three more emerging tech areas, Big Data, driverless cars, and geospatial computing. COM.Geo has been playing a guiding role to advancing the technologies in computing for geospatial research and application since it was initiated 5 years ago.

This year, COM.* conferences and summits will focus on COM.BigData 2014, COM.DriverelessCar 2014, and COM.Geo 2014. All three will take place in the same time frame and conference center in August in Washington DC, USA as well as COM.* online Virtual Conference center.

Several leading keynotes and insightful panels from U.S. federal government and world-class industries and universities will be open to all the attendees of the three conferences and summits. There will be a great opportunity for everyone to learn trends, share visions, exchange ideas, discuss details, and expand networking circles.
