In the mid 1990s, several RDBMS vendors began offering spatial data types as object-relational technologies advanced. The release of the first stable PostGIS in 2005 meant that GIS professionals could do, for free, many important GIS tasks at the database level more efficiently through writing SQL!
This workshop will cover:
1) Advantages of the database approach to GIS
2) Installing and exploring PostgreSQL
3) Building spatial layers (tables and indexes)
4) Spatial data loading
5) Spatial data QC
6) Spatial data analysis
7) Spatial data publishing
8) Consuming and presenting spatial data stored in PostgreSQL using ArcGIS
Basic knowledge of GIS and RDBMS;
Basic SQL skills are not required but would be helpful.
