Initially developed at IBM in the early 1970s, SQL was formalized by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in 1986. Since then the SQL standard has been revised seven times.
SQL consists of a data definition language (DDL) and a data manipulation language (DML). The DDL is used to create, delete, and alter the structure of a table and other database objects. The DML is used to insert, retrieve, and update data in a table or tables.
Many database vendors implement a version of SQL that is not 100% compliant with the standard. They often add unique features to their SQL, resulting in an SQL dialect.
This book is for you if you want to learn SQL the easy way. This book uses the free edition of the Oracle database to show how SQL works.

Traditional methods for handling spatial data are encumbered by the assumption of separate origins for horizontal and vertical measurements. Modern measurement systems operate in a 3-D spatial environment. The 3-D Global Spatial Data Model: Foundation of the Spatial Data Infrastructure offers a new model for handling digital spatial data, the global spatial data model or GSDM. The GSDM preserves the integrity of three-dimensional spatial data while also providing additional benefits such as simpler equations, worldwide standardization, and the ability to track spatial data accuracy with greater specificity and convenience. This groundbreaking spatial model incorporates both a functional model and a stochastic model to connect the physical world to the ECEF rectangular system. Combining horizontal and vertical data into a single, three-dimensional database, this authoritative monograph provides a logical development of theoretical concepts and practical tools that can be used to handle spatial data more efficiently. The book clearly describes procedures that can be used to handle both ECEF and flat-Earth rectangular components in the context of a rigorous global environment.

Paper is amazing stuff. It's cheap, easy to use, and easy to recycle. It's lightweight and easy to cut or tear--but incredibly strong when folded, layered, or rolled. It can stand stiff as a board, pop up like a spring, or hang softly like a silk scarf. It's disposable, but it can last for centuries. Its surface can be rough, or creamy smooth, or shiny. Sometimes it's so thin you can see through it; other times, it's thick enough to hold globs of paint. But it can also be beautiful, all on its own.
