GIS Fundamentals – Spatial Database, PostGIS

By |

PostGIS, built on top of PostgreSQL, is the most powerful open-source relational database for managing spatial data. In this workshop we will cover the basic concept of spatial databases, learn about setting PostGIS, and understand how PostGIS can help us manage large volumes of vector data spread over multiple tables and geometries efficiently.  We will also touch upon topics such as spatial indexing and the capabilities of PostGIS for other data models for 2-D GIS such as the network and raster data model.
