Intro to PostGIS

Workshop: PostGIS


Learn how to load and manage data with PostGIS, the spatial extension to the PostgreSQL database. This class is intended for those comfortable with basic GIS concepts and using the command line. Learning SQL will take your GIS skills to the next level; a single line of SQL can tackle issues that would take multiple lines of Python code or half an hour clicking in a GUI. Many spatial operations take seconds on PostGIS and would take hours on desktop systems.

Students who sign up for this course will have the opportunity to ask questions of an instructor and will have access to video recordings of the materials being presented.
