Workshops: June 28 and 29

Starts 10:00 am – Workshop: GIS with PostgreSQL by Giuseppe Broccolo (IT) – Chagall Room

  2 hours and 30 minutes

PostgreSQL provides many useful features to GIS users. Our goal in this talk is to show simple examples of what can be done in PostgreSQL, starting with geolocation, searches like inclusion and “nearest neighbour”, routing, etc., through the geospatial extensions available for this DBMS. However, this is not intended to be a true “course”, but rather a moment where we can discuss about the possible answers that PostgreSQL can provide to GIS users.
