Web mapping with MySQL

An introduction to MySQL GIS

Web maps are everywhere these days, and there are a lot of frameworks that can display a map. But you still have to provide the data yourself. This talk teaches you how to use MySQL with its GIS functions in the database back end for your maps.

MySQL GIS is getting a boost in 5.7 with InnoDB R-trees, new GIS functions and more accurate results. This talk presents the new functionality by leading the audience through a step by step guide to making a simple web map service.

The target audience is MySQL users that want to learn the basics of how to display their data in a map. Users that already know MySQL GIS will learn about the new features in 5.7.
