The ability to analyze data is a core facet of the Internet of Things. Azure Maps Spatial Operations will take location information and analyze it on the fly to help inform customers of ongoing events happening in time and space.

The Spatial Operations we are launching consist of  Geofencing, Buffer, Closest Point, Great Circle Distance and Point in Polygon. We will demonstrate geofencing capabilities, how to associate fences with temporal constraints so that fences are evaluated only when relevant, and how to react to Geofence events with Event Grid. Finally, we will talk about how other spatial operations can support geofencing and other scenarios.

In 2016, I started the Microsoft Professional Program in Data Science when it was released to the public. At the time, I was changing my career vector from an ace Windows app developer to the Data Science and AI world. The program, the first of its kind for Microsoft, provided me with the means and the tools to achieve ninja status quickly and reboot my career. They are also, when compared to university programs, much more affordable.

In the years since, Microsoft has added more professional programs, from Cybersecurity to DevOps. Naturally, I took and completed the tracks for AI and Big Data. You can hear Andy Leonard and I talk about our experiences with the program and how they differ from traditional MCP programs in this episode of Data Driven. Or click on the play button below.

Now, the team has added an IoT track to the list, which can help accelerate anyone’s career in this fast-growing and world changing field: IoT.

This new program will teach you the device programming, data analytics, machine learning, and solution design skills you need for a successful career in IoT. Learn the skills necessary to start or progress a career working on a team that implements IoT solutions.
