What is a GIS project ?

SQL Server 2008 has all the necessary geospatial data types. For a little primer on how to use GIS, you should visit the ESRI site. They are the industry leader on that sort of thing.

If you need a graphic user interface (to display maps) there is also MapInfo;
If you only want to store geographical data and make calculation (distance between points, Point in polygon, adjacence of areas, and so on) Oracle Spatial is great.
