A hands on demonstration for building real-time maps and geofences for moving objects. We will use the newly announced pg_enventserv for eventing along with pg_featureserv for a web API to build a fully functional web application.
The cool thing about foreign data wrappers is that they're an alternative to needing to have everything in the same data store. With spatial data being stored and shared in so many different formats, imagine being able to abstract that conversion away and just focus on analysis. Read on for a couple of quick demos.
Raster data access from the spatial database is an important feature, and the coming release of PostGIS will make remote access more practical, by allowing access to private cloud storage.
One theme of the 3.2 release is new analytical functionality in the raster module, and access to cloud-based rasters via the "out-db" option for rasters. Let's explore two new functions and exercise cloud raster support at the same time.
A common situation in the spatial data world is having discrete measurements of a continuous variable. Every place in the world has a temperature, but there are only a finite number of thermometers - how should we reason about places without thermometers and how should we model temperature?
