Native support for geospatial functions in Stream Analytics
Published date: 11 April, 2018
Azure Stream Analytics customers can now easily build solutions for scenarios such as connected cars, fleet management and mobile asset tracking.
Developers can use built-in geospatial functions in their stream-processing logic to define geographical areas. Developers can evaluate incoming geospatial data for containment, proximity and overlap and then generate alerts or start necessary workflows.
These geospatial capabilities are in alignment with the GeoJSON specification.
