Hi again - long time no action hear... sorry for that. My focus has been more on APEX...
By coincidence I came across the SPATIAL STUDIO, which might be of interest to Oracle Maps users/developers. Worth mentioning - Try it out !!!
Concerning Spatial Studio Carsten Czarski also posted an interesting "Nearest Neighbour" search here.
In combination with Oracle APEX Colin Archer posted this interesting blog-post after the APEX-Team had invested quite a lot on maps in APEX called "NATIVE MAPS".
NATIVE MAPS Contents:
Adding a new Map page via the wizard
Map Region Attributes
Customising my map page
