A geobrowser for IBM® DB2®, Informix® and Netezza® is now available as a free download. You can easily list tables containing spatial data and select tables to display as a map using a combination of points, lines, and polygons. The color, symbols, line style, and shading are user-selectable. Map navigation tools allow you to zoom in and out, pan, and select and display the alphanumeric values associated with each graphic object. The geobrowser can render the results of spatial analysis using DB2, Informix or Netezza. For example, the results of a spatial query that identifies customers within a flood zone can be visualized. The geobrowser is based on components from IBM's ILOG® JViews Maps. Use these components to construct custom spatial visualization applications. This tutorial shows how to use the free geobrowser to visualize data from DB2 tables.
