Is it possible to create spatial index on sql server 2008? If yes how do we create it on table with schemabinding?

Unfortunately I don't believe you can. XML and Spatial Indexes can only be created tables. Not views.


Here's some proof for you straight from BOL: Restrictions on Spatial Indexes

Spatial Indexes cannot be specified on indexed views.
