[postgis-users] Who is Using PostGIS? For What?

It is that time of year again (conference time) so I am going to ask my
annual question(s):

    Who are you?

CCGIS, Germany

    What are you using PostGIS for?

Hosting vector geometries in every single spatial data infastructure that we set up.

    Why did you choose PostGIS?

What else should we do?

    What makes you happy about your PostGIS installation?

That our administrator is happy maintaining productive client systems using it.

    What makes you unhappy about your PostGIS installation?

That it does not have enough visibility. We could convince the client to set up a demo system - which is very cool - but you cannot really see PostGIS a lot. It is invisible software.

Those who want to remain in confidence, but still want to make their
feelings known, please respond to me directly.

I am going to be writing up a handful of PostGIS users into full white-papers for the web site and my own conference talks, so please, if you think you have a compelling PostGIS story, start by giving us a summary here on the list!

I love hearing these stories!


Impressing list that is building up in this list. Congrats!

Find all the information regarding our latest project here:

This system will probably be presented at the FOSS4G in Lausanne with reference to an OSGeo SDI stack (Mapbender, GeoServer, MapServer). For further details please contact uli.rothstein@ccgis.de or peter.stamm@ccgis.de or me (I'll be back in three weeks).

More than half the links in the Mapbender Gallery have PostGIS somewhere in their architecture, just browse whether there is anything interesting.

The coolest project is probably the OSGeo member list operated at telascience that will be up and running for the FOSS4G. Hopefully - if that kickstart server starts kicking.

Best regards,
