postgis

Geographic objects support for PostgreSQL

Description

PostGIS adds support for geographic objects to the PostgreSQL object-relational database. In effect, PostGIS "spatially enables" the PostgreSQL server, allowing it to be used as a backend spatial database for geographic information systems (GIS), much like ESRI's SDE or Oracle's Spatial extension. PostGIS follows the OpenGIS "Simple Features Specification for SQL".

This package contains the PostGIS userland binaries for importing and exporting shape and raster files: pgsql2shp, raster2pgsql, and shp2pgsql.
