Visualizing spatial and geometric data stored and managed in DB2 databases is often crucial for users to understand the data itself. Jointly with ESRI, IBM® provides the no-charge ArcExplorer™ for such tasks. Learn how to set up and use ArcExplorer on various platforms. The data to be displayed can be stored in a spatially-enabled DB2® database hosted on Linux®, UNIX®, or Windows®. Also learn how to access spatial data stored on DB2 for z/OS using the spatial support feature available with Version 9.
