>> Are there efforts underway to incorporate standard spatial and
temporal data types and operators in SQL? <<

Yes, but I do not expect to see anything come of it. You might want to get Rick Snodgrrass' book from Morgan-Kaufmann Publishers about temporal data in SQL. Lots of good programming tricks.

When posting, inclusion of SQL (CREATE TABLE ..., INSERT ..., etc) which can be cut and pasted into Query Analyzer is appreciated.
