This workshop will further develop the material covered on spatial databases in the first workshop a few weeks back. PostGIS is the most widely used spatial database and is built on top of PostgreSQL, a powerful open source relational database. The focus of this workshop is to exploit PostGIS to deal with big vector data, and use familiar tools in R to reduce the burden to learn SQL.
This is a hands-on workshop. Please make sure that you have PostgreSQL installed along with pgAdmin.
Participants should be familiar with vector data processing in R.
